QUINCY, Pa. -- Authorities in south-central Pennsylvania say a man charged in the shooting deaths of his estranged wife, her boyfriend and his mother admits he'd "messed up."

Thirty-five-year-old Kevin Cleeves is charged with three counts of criminal homicide in the Friday night deaths of 25-year-old Brandi Cleeves, 28-year-old Vincent Santucci and 55-year-old Rosemary Holma.

Pennsylvania state police say Cleeves went to Santucci's house to confront his estranged wife about custody arrangements and was asked to leave but instead opened fire. He then took the girl and fled.

He was arrested about 250 miles away in Austintown, Ohio, outside Youngstown. The girl is safe. Cleeves faces an extradition hearing Monday. Court records don't list an attorney for him.
