"He admitted he killed (his mother) with a hammer because he did not want to use the gun anymore," according to court documents.

On Oct. 27, Farmington Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 5400 block of 183rd Street West to check the welfare of a woman who had gone to her ex-husband's home earlier in the evening.

Officers found three dead adults inside the home. A man was taken into custody at the scene.

Blake Thomas Maloney, 26, was charged with three counts of second-degree murder. Authorities said Maloney told them, "I did something. I murdered them or something," when they found him on the scene, according to KARE 11 News.

“I want to reassure the community that this was not a random incident and there is no ongoing danger to the public,” Farmington Police Chief Gary Rutherford said in a statement.

“We are not looking for any additional suspects.”

Authorities said they have no motive for the killings.

The officer reportedly found Tracy Maloney, 53, on the kitchen floor with a yoga mat over her face with “a large amount of blood on the floor and several head injuries consistent with blows from a hammer.”

They also found Jack Maloney, 55, dead on a bed in the basement with a gunshot wound to the head, covered with blankets. Scott Maloney, 23, was reportedly found in a second-floor bedroom with a gunshot wound to the head, the complaint said, according to the Associated Press.

Officers reportedly found a bloody hammer and loaded AR-15 rifle in the house.

At the police station, Blake Maloney allegedly said he killed his brother, then his father a couple of days before authorities found the Maloneys.
