Police say they've taken a man into custody in the killings of four people, including two children found in a Cleveland home.

Authorities said Wednesday they'll release more details about the aggravated murder charges they plan to file during a news conference Thursday.

Autopsies show that two children who were found dead Tuesday died from smoke inhalation while a 25-year-old woman who lived in the home died from multiple gunshots.

A 35-year-old man also was found shot to death in a vacant lot near the house.

Family members say David Cousin Jr. and Takeyra Collins were neighbors but didn't really know each other.

Relatives told cleveland.com that Collins was raising her two children, a 2-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy.
