Last October, we told you about an Effingham County family that was found shot to death outside their home. The suspect, 28-year-old Deanthony Germaine Griffin, has been in custody ever since. He was arrested in Hilton Head in connection with the Cribbs family murder, and today he's being extradited from to Effingham County.

Griffin is being charged in the murder of 48-year-old David Brian Cribbs and his two children, 28-year-old David Cribbs, Jr., and 18-year-old Ashley Brooke Cribbs. Effingham County Sheriff's Department said the murders appeared to be drug related. Deanthony Griffin was said to have known the Cribbs family quite well.
