NEW YORK (AP) — Police investigating the stabbing deaths of a mother and her two young children in New York City say the children's father is a suspect and they're looking for him.
Police said Monday dad Miguel Mejia-Ramos is known to drive a white 2001 Chevrolet commercial van and a white Dodge Suburban.
Police say 21-year-old Deisy Garcia, 2-year-old Daniela Mejia and 1-year-old Yaslin Mejia were found dead in an apartment in the Jamaica section of Queens on Sunday night.
The victims were stabbed multiple times and were found in the apartment's bedroom. Other members of the household discovered the gruesome scene.
Members of Garcia's church say she and her daughters were from Guatemala.
