A husband suspected of brutally stabbing his young wife and their two daughters to death as they got ready for church has been caught by police trying to flee to Mexico.
Miguel Mejias-Ramos, 28, was stopped by U.S. Marshals just before midnight driving a car with New York State license plates and attempting to get into Mexico, where he was born, police sources said.
His arrest came a day after he allegedly murdered his wife Deisy Garcia, 21, and their two daughters, two-year-old Daniela Mejia and one-year-old Yaslin Mejia, at their home in Queens, New York.
