Arthur Galarneau appeared before the Court of Quebec via videoconference Saturday morning.
He was charged with killing Mylène Gingras, Francine Gingras-Boucher and Richard Galarneau.
Police have confirmed “there is a family connection between the victims and the suspect.”
Montreal police also say the deceased, who were found in a building on Bélanger Street near Viau Street, were the city’s third, fourth and fifth murder victims of 2023.
They bore traces of violence, possible caused by a sharp object, police told CityNews Friday.
“The three victims are a 53-year-old woman, a 75-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man,” said SPVM spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils.
Police say the suspect had no criminal record. His arrest was caught on video by several neighbours and onlookers.
The suspect will return to court on April 11 for further proceedings.

Employees and patients who had to go to the Montreal Heart Institute, located across from the crime scene, were asked to enter the establishment by another access than its main entrance.
In a press briefing in his riding of L’Assomption on Friday, Quebec Premier François Legault said this was a “really disturbing” situation.
Asked about the accumulation of fatal tragedies in recent weeks, Legault did not want to comment on the specific case in the Rosemont district, but he underlined that everywhere in the world there were problems related to the mental health.
Legault reiterated his commitment to increase funding reserved for mental health in the budget that will be presented next week.
