QUEENS, NEW YORK - David Daniel, the landlord charged with the gruesome triple murder of his tenants and girlfriend, was walked out of the NYPD 113th Precinct on Wednesday afternoon by police.

Following the brutal, fatal stabbings of his two tenants and girlfriend inside his Milburn Avenue home early Tuesday morning, David Daniel, 54, was held at the 113th Precinct in Rochdale Village until about 1:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon when NYPD officials walked him out. He was placed in the backseat of an unmarked NYPD patrol vehicle.

Daniel faces murder charges after confessing to uniformed police officers in the precinct that he was having issues with his tenants and girlfriend and that he "did something bad" to them. When NYPD officers responded to the house around 7:15 AM on Tuesday, they found the lifeless bodies of three victims that were stabbed to death.

According to police, the victims are 51-year-old Coleen Fields, Daniel's girlfriend, 55-year-old Evette Sweeney, and a man idenified as 57-year-old Wayne Thomas.

Reporters at the walk-out for Daniel asked him for a motive behind the killings, to which he replied "A lot of pressure" and immediately followed up with "peer pressure."

Police say that the victims were murdered after an ongoing dispute involving rent that allegedly was unpaid for several years.
