Authorities in central Illinois say they have arrested three teenagers in the slayings of three people in their 60s whose whose bodies were found this week inside a residence in the community of Danville.

Eighteen-year-old Cloanger T.M. Robinson Jr. and a 16-year-old boy whose name hasn't been released have been charged with first-degree murder. A 17-year-old boy whose name wasn't released because of his age is charged with aggravated robbery.

Friday's arrests come a day after the bodies of three people were found in a Danville residence.

Vermillion County Coroner Jane McFadden identified the victims as 65-year-old Nathaniel Gentry; 60-year-old Anthony D. Jones and 67-year-old Cordell Reed Sr., all of Danville.

Police say preliminary autopsy results indicate they died from stab wounds and blunt force trauma.
