According to authorities, the massive man wanted for a triple homicide in Queens was returned to the city on Friday to face murder charges.

Travis Blake, 29, was flown from Maine to New York after being apprehended there after a six-day search in June.

He spent the summer in a Maine detention facility fighting his extradition to Queens, where he would be charged.

Blake is charged with the murders of his girlfriend Karlene Barnett, his family friend Varshana “Brittany” Malcolm, 22, and her son Dervon Brightly, 35.

On June 24, a family member discovered the three victims inside their house on 155th St. close to 116th Road.

Before they were found, they had been dead for about three days.

Police reported that Malcolm was found dead in a bedroom with her hands tied together and her lips taped, while Barnett and her son were stabbed repeatedly in the basement.

The young victim came from Jamaica to visit.

Police located Blake at a lobster house in Bar Harbor, Maine, roughly 500 miles north of the city, about a day after releasing his mugshot.

The victims’ relatives claimed that despite never having spent a single day in the military, Blake has an odd preoccupation with it.

He frequently bragged about his fictitious military profession and shared images of himself wearing military-inspired fatigues on social media.

Before the killing spree, he even informed one of Barnett’s family members that he would travel to Maine in June for Army reserve training.
