A Ohio man who'd been arrested earlier this year on accusations he assaulted his wife killed the woman along with his baby son and his stepdaughter before taking his own life, police say, according to multiple reports.

Police found Tyler A Young, 29, in a Lorain, Ohio, home on Sunday Nov. 19 along with his wife Skyler Young, 24, their 4-month-old son Bandin Young and Skyler’s daughter Angel Isaac, 9, FOX 8, News 5 Cleveland and Cleveland 19 reported.

Police were responding to reports of loose dogs in the vicinity when they came upon an unlocked door of the second floor of the home, where they discovered the bodies, according to FOX 8.

A GoFundMe has been set up by Skyler's stepsisters to assist with funeral costs.

Skyler's friend Amber Lillo told The Chronicle that Skyler was was artist who loved to write.

"She drew so many pictures — she had a sketchbook the whole time she lived with me and that was how she would relieve her stress was writing or drawing," Lillo told the outlet.

In an online obituary, Angel was described as an artist who loved the color pink and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. In a statement to FOX 8, Angel's school, Horizon Science Academy, said the girl was full of “warmth, kindness, and positive spirit.”

According to Lorain County jail records, Tyler was booked in May on strangulation and domestic violence charges and released on $10,000 bond within two weeks.

Lorain County court records show that days after he was arrested in May, a grand jury returned his case without an indictment. Police say the grand jury issued this decision after Skyler withdrew some of her statements against him, according to News 5 Cleveland.

Tyler was issued a temporary protection order at the time.
