Police have said the girls were between the ages of 5 and 10. Investigators believe they were dead for several weeks before the bodies were found on a farm outside Norwood, about 30 miles west of the ski resort town of Telluride.

Authorities have shared few other details about the case that shocked the town of about 500 people.

It’s not clear how any of the defendants are connected to the children. Authorities haven’t released any details about what caused their deaths, and affidavits in the case have been closed to public view.

Two men and a third woman face other charges in the girls’ deaths.

Blair and Archer also have been charged with acting as an accessory to a crime.
