Four people have been charged with murder in the deaths of three people who were found stabbed last week in a burning house on Detroit’s west side.

A vehicle and other items that belonged to the victims helped link the suspects to the crime, Detroit police said.

Tenisha Jackson, 19; Larry Johnson, 20; Rashawn Johnson, 19, and Keeshon Lake, 19, have each been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, three counts of felony murder, two counts of armed robbery and one court of arson, according to police. Larry Johnson has also been charged with possessing heroin and a felony firearms offense.

Firefighters were called the afternoon of Feb. 10 to a house fire on the 13000 block of Bentler, just south of I-96 near West Outer Drive. Inside, they found a dying man on the first floor and two dead men in the basement.
