NEW YORK (AP) — Police are searching for a man they say stabbed his girlfriend and her three daughters in a New York City hotel, killing the woman and one of the girls.
A police official tells The Associated Press that 23-year-old Michael Sykes called his mother early Wednesday to say he was going to kill his girlfriend and himself.
The official wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Police say 28-year-old Rebecca Cutler died at a hospital following the subsequent stabbing at a Ramada Inn on Staten Island.
They say her 2-year-old daughter, Miracle Cutler, also died at a hospital.
The other two girls are 1 ½ years old and 5 months. They are in critical condition. The 5-month-old is Sykes’ daughter.
