(Newser) – Police have now identified all three women found dead in a shed at an Idaho man's farm in June. Authorities, who earlier identified one victim as 56-year-old Cheryl Baker, wife of fugitive Gerald Michael Bullinger, say the second two victims are 48-year-old Nadja Medley, Bullinger's alleged mistress, and Payton Medley, her 14-year-old daughter, People reports. Police say Bullinger, who was already wanted on charges of failing to report the deaths, will now be charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Authorities say all three victims died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Police say Nadja and Payton Medley—who had apparently moved to the Caldwell, Idaho, farm from Utah—were identified with DNA evidence found in the course of the investigation, KTVB reports. A nationwide manhunt is underway for Bullinger, who is considered armed and dangerous, the Idaho State Journal reports. His vehicle was found July 12 at a remote campground in northwest Wyoming, and authorities say evidence found in the vehicle helped identify the victims and build a "very strong" case for murder charges.
