BELVIDERE, Ill. (AP) — A man has been charged in the slayings of a man and his two young sons found shot to death last month in a northern Illinois home.

Alize Q. Smith, 24, of Huntley, faces three counts of first-degree murder in the Dec. 19 killings of Andrew Hintt, 31, and his two sons, Benjamin, 7, and Sebastian, 5, Belvidere police said Wednesday.
