The suspect in custody in connection with a quadruple homicide in Slavic Village earlier this week is the father of one of the victims, Cleveland police said.

Armond Johnson, Sr., 26, has not yet been formally charged in the killings but was arrested on aggravated murder charges Thursday morning following an arrest Tuesday in a separate aggravated robbery case.

At Mound School in Slavic Village, Teyon and Taylor Rice are visiting the school nurse for a check-up on their asthma, which sometimes flares up during school.

"I know an asthma attack is starting when I start coughing out of nowhere or when I’m running, or laughing too much," Teyon said. "Then when I do have an asthma attack, I raise my hand and my teacher will send me down here."

"It like hurts really bad in my heart and my chest and my throat," Taylor said.
