    Hi Junfeng Jiang,

    Have you verified that these variants are from the same sample and are phased properly? I'm not sure why the tool would output three separate deletions that are all in a row when it could output one deletion. If everything has been done properly, then I don't believe there is a GATK tool that would achieve what you are looking for.

    Kind regards,
