INEZ, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities have made a second arrest in the deaths of three people whose bodies were found in a home that burned in eastern Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police say that 26-year-old Amanda Bowen of Inez was arrested and charged with three counts of murder and one count of first-degree robbery.

Authorities were alerted of the house fire in Inez early last Saturday, and the three bodies were found inside the home.

Officials haven't released the victims' names. Autopsies are being conducted by the state medical examiner's office.

Police arrested 41-year-old Jack D. Smith, also of Inez, on Saturday and charged him with three counts of murder, one count of first-degree robbery and one count of tampering with physical evidence.

It wasn't immediately clear if either Bowen or Smith has an attorney.
