Hudson, Fla (WTXL)--

Authorities have now charged a man they believe killed his ex-girlfriend, her parents and her new boyfriend. 

Deputies charged 28 year-old Adam Matos with four counts of first-degree murder. Detectives say the victims were killed around August 28th. Officials went to their home September 4th at the request of a concerned family member. Deputies then found the four bodies piled atop each other in an open field. 

An arrest report says Matos took his 4-year old son from the home after the killings. He and the unharmed boy were found at a Tampa Hotel. Matos is being held without bond at the Pasco County Jail.
