EAST NEW YORK, N.Y. (WPIX) - A 24-year-old Brooklyn man confessed to killing his girlfriend and her two daughters inside their Brooklyn apartment.
Jermaine Ruiz, was apparently preparing to hide the bodies in a dumpster when police arrived on the scene Friday afternoon.
According to police, the woman's body was found in plastic bags in the vestibule of the East New York residence. She had reportedly suffered multiple stab wounds. Her two children -- ages 2 and 5 -- were also found dead and wrapped up inside carpet.
The crime was reportedly uncovered after Ruiz called his dad in the Bronx and confessed to murdering his girlfriend and her two daughters. The father then alerted police, who uncovered the three bodies.
Police believe the murders occurred Wednesday after Ruiz and his girlfriend got into an argument.
Charges against Ruiz were pending Friday night
