George Brinkman enters not-guilty pleas for murders of North Royalton women

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man charged with killing five people in Northeast Ohio has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and other charges in the deaths of three of them, a mother and her two college-age daughters.

A judge ordered George Brinkman Jr. held without bond after he pleaded not guilty Friday in the deaths of 45-year-old Suzanne Taylor, 21-year-old Taylor Pifer and 18-year-old Kylie Pifer. Their bodies were found June 11 at their home in North Royalton.

Brinkman also was indicted on charges including aggravated burglary, kidnapping and offenses against a human corpse.

He also faces murder charges in Stark County in the deaths of 71-year-old Rogell Eugene John and 64-year-old Roberta Ray John.

Brinkman’s attorney, Thomas Conway, declined to comment Friday.
