CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - George Brinkman made an initial appearance in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Wednesday morning on charges connected to the murders of Suzanne Taylor and her two daughters of North Royalton.
Brinkman allegedly slit 45-year-old Suzanne's throat, smothered 21-year-old Taylor to death, and strangled 18-year-old Kylie with a telephone cord.
During Brinkman's initial arraignment in Parma Municipal Court on June 15, the judge set a $75 million bond and bounded the charges over to the Cuyahoga County court system. The judge for Wednesday's hearing said there is no need to change his bond.
Brinkman appeared via camera for the initial appearance, and was not as heavily-shackled as he was during the June 15 arraignment. He left Wednesday's hearing without saying a word or expressing much emotion.
Police have made connections between Brinkman and the murder victims, but a motive has not been established.
