After four bodies were discovered in a home that was on fire, investigators concluded that the mother and her three daughters had suffered trauma before the fire occurred. A murder investigation ensued, but shortly after, Corey King, 18, turned himself in to Sheriff's detectives after hearing on TV they were looking for him. At first, he was reportedly just in for questioning and not a suspect. But by early this morning, reports stated he was later arrested.
