A New Yorker charged with murder in the stabbing deaths of his wife and their two toddlers is being held without bail.
He was arrested Monday in Texas en route to Mexico after authorities tracked his cellphone. He agreed on Wednesday to return to New York.
Deisy Garcia, 1-year-old Yoselin Mejia and 2-year-old Daniela Mejia were killed in their bedrooms last Sunday.
Authorities say detectives recovered five knives with what appeared to be blood on them.
Mejia-Ramos was placed on suicide watch. Prosecutors say he told investigators he killed his children because he didn't have car seats to take them on the lam.
