According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, the victims had been shot and decapitated.

Family members told NewsChannel 4 that the home was being used as a daycare at the time of the murders.

Authorities say they discovered three small children in a covered garage.

Fortunately, the children were not harmed and were later reunited with their families.

"Luckily, they weren't injured in any way, shape or form," said Sgt. Ashley Peters, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Officials say Laster is the grandson of Sharon Reed. He was arrested on two complaints of first-degree murder.
