CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas —

The man who police say admitted beating two family members to death and critically injuring a third is due in court this afternoon.

Mohammad Sahi, 72, is charged with one count of capital murder and one count of aggravated assault of a family member.

He was arrested Thursday after police found the bodies of his 47-year-old daughter and his 18-year-old grandson inside a home on Denain Drive in the Kings Crossing neighborhood.

The third victim, a 21-year-old grandson, also was found inside the home.

Sahi told police he had beaten them all with a stick, but so far no motive has been given.

Sahi's bond is set at $2.75 million.
