SALT LAKE CITY -- The 25-year-old suspect in a triple homicide at a drug house in Midvale has been formally charged with murder.

Prosecutors charged David Fresques in 3rd District Court on Friday with three counts of aggravated murder and one of attempted murder.

Fresques was arrested days after the Feb. 12 shooting after crashing a stolen pickup into a parked car.

A South Salt Lake officer recognized him as the suspect in the still-unexplained shooting.

Authorities have said only that Fresques got into an argument before opening fire at a house that was a recent target of a police drug raid.

Authorities say Fresques shot four people, leaving three of them dead.
