Suspect claims he did not murder the Angleton family of three (KTRK)

On Saturday, authorities arrested Robert Satterfield and charged him with three counts of murder.

Officials named Satterfield a suspect after burned remains were found at a site in Wharton County.

According to a press release from the Wharton County Sheriff's Office, the remains are believed to be of three family members from Angleton.

The family of Maya Rivera says they haven't heard from her, Ray Shawn Hudson Sr. or their 5-year-old son Ray Shawn Jr. since Sunday, June 10.

In an interview with Eyewitness News, Satterfield claims he's not responsible for killing the three victims and says that he's "grief stricken with the families as well."

"It may not seem like it, but I'm going through a whole other storm myself. I feel their pain," Satterfield said.
