by Cami Mountain

PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) -- The man accused of murdering his estranged girlfriend and two of their small children was back in Portage County court.

Shane Kettner of Nelsonville is charged with three counts of First Degree Intentional Homicide.

Investigators found Kettner's girlfriend,  Christine Gollon, and the couple's son and daughter dead in their home on April 30th.

Kettner was also found in the home along with the couples 6 month old daughter.  Both were overcome by gas fumes.  The infant survived.

District Attorney, Tom Eagon, says because of the nature and severity of these charges, Kettner will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.  He says, "Certainly, it's horrifying for the families involved and the investigators involved. It's a very serious set of events that we're going to deal with appropriately."

Kettner will be back in court for his preliminary hearing on June 5th.
