NEW YORK - Police say the father of two young girls found stabbed to death along with their mother in their New York City home has been arrested in Texas.

The NYPD says 28-year-old Miguel Mejia-Ramos was captured early Tuesday morning at a vehicle roadblock in Shulenburg, Texas, located between Houston and San Antonio.

Police say Mejia-Ramos is considered a suspect in the stabbings. They say he was arrested by U.S. Marshals and local police on a New York warrant. Charges are pending.

It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.

The bodies of 1-year-old Yaslin Mejia and 2-year-old Daniela Mejia and their mother, 21-year-old Deisy Garcia, were discovered in a bedroom of their Queens apartment by other household members on Sunday night. They had been stabbed multiple times in their chests.
