(KUTV) Two Utah residents have been identified as victims in an Idaho triple homicide and Idaho police said Gerald Michael Bullinger is wanted for the killing.

In Caldwell, Idaho, the Canyon County coroner’s office, according to a county press release, has identified the two remaining victims from a triple homicide that occurred on KCID Road in early June.

Ogden, Utah residents Nadja Medley, 48, and Payton Medley, 14, were identified through DNA evidence, confirmed through Idaho's police forensics.

Cheryl Baker, 56, of Ogden, was identified on June 30 through dental records.

The confirmation of DNA evidence and additional physical evidence in this case has led the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office to submit for a felony homicide warrant for Bullinger, 60, of Caldwell, Idaho. Previously Bullinger was a person of interest in the case and had an outstanding warrant for failure to report a death.

Bullinger will be charged with three counts of first-degree murder, according to the Canyon County attorney's office.

Both the previous warrant and the new one are no-bond warrants and nationwide extradition rules apply.
