MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Murder charges have been filed against a 26-year-old Farmington man who is accused of killing family members in a triple homicide.

The Dakota County Attorney’s Office charged Blake Maloney with three felony charges of second-degree murder with intent but not premeditation in connection to the incident.

According to the criminal complaint, Maloney allegedly fatally shot his 23-year-old brother and his 55-year-old father on Oct. 25 inside the Farmington residence. A couple days later, he killed his father’s ex-wife with a hammer after she arrived at the home.

Just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers were called to the 5400 block of 183rd Street West to check on the welfare of a person visiting the home. That’s when they found the victims and Maloney inside the residence.

According to the complaint, Maloney told the officer who responded that “I did something. I murdered them or something.”

In an interview with police, Maloney said he didn’t believe that the victims were his family. He said he used the hammer in the third homicide because he did not want to use the gun anymore, the charges said.

Police recovered a rifle in the living room leaning against a couch and a hammer with apparent blood on it at the top of a garbage can in the living room.

If convicted, he could face up to 40 years in prison.
