Police have made progress in a NYC triple homicide that happened Sunday night. ABC News reports Jan. 21 that they have made an arrest in Texas after two young girls and their mother were stabbed to death in their home in Queens.

New York City police arrested Miguel Mejia-Ramos, 28, for their murders. He was the father of the girls the had with their mother. He was caught early Tuesday in Schulenburg, Texas when a roadblock stopped him from running further. The town is between Houston and San Antonio.

Mejia-Ramos is considered the lead suspect in the NYC triple homicide. U.S. Marshals and local police arrested Meja-Ramos on a New York warrant, according to the report. At this time charges are still pending.

Authorities in Fayette County, Texas were able to track the suspect down after he powered on his cellphone. He is known to go by at least one other name.

Not much information on this NYC triple suicide is being released right now other than he was taken into custody. It is not known if he has a lawyer.

The murder victims are Yaslin Mejia, 1, Daniela Mejia, 2, and their mother, Deisy Garcia, 21.

Luckily police were able to find the suspect and arrest him in the NYC triple homicide case. If he is found guilty, hopefully he will get maximum punishment for killing his family.
