LAYTON, Utah — Three homicide victims were found dead inside a home near 1800 E Gentile Street in Layton this morning.
According to Travis Lyman, Lieutenant with the Layton Police Department, 34-year-old Jeremy Bailey called the department this morning saying he had killed someone inside his home. That man is now in custody.
Police say the victims are all adults and were found in different locations of the house.
One victim was the wife of the suspect, 36-year-old Anastasia Stevens. The other two victims were Anastasia’s parents, Donald Stevens and Becky Stevens.
