HEMET, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of shooting two people and slashing the throat of a third killed his wife or ex-wife and his 5-year-old daughter.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says authorities identified the shooting victims on Monday but didn't release their names.

Johnny Lopez of Hemet was arrested on Saturday after he was found covered in blood about a mile-and-a-half from where the bodies of his daughter and the 36-year-old woman were found. He remains jailed.

A second woman was found in a different home. Her throat had been slashed and she remains in critical condition.

Detectives haven't determined her relationship to Lopez but say she may have had a previous romantic involvement.

Investigators still are trying to determine a motive for the attack.
