61-year-old Jean Pierre Ndossoka was charged with two counts of capital murder after stabbing his own young children to death.
Houston Chronicle reported that he was on the run for a day following his crime but was later found alive in his car in Pasadena. Despite having shot himself in the car, he was alive when the police found him.
The authorities then took him to Clear Lake Regional Hospital in stable condition, where he was treated for his non-life-threatening wounds.
At the hospital, he claimed the authorities to have had high blood pressure and initially stated that he did not remember what happened. However, he did admit that he ‘did something bad,’ as per Daily Mail

Houston Police Department found out that on the day of the murder, Ndossoka called his wife, Sabine Ntongo, to tell her that he was killing their children, a one-year-old daughter, and an eight-year-old son.
His wife informed 911 and rushed over to Ndossoka’s apartment in southwest Houston as soon as possible, but she could not make it on time.
When police arrived at the scene, they found both the children lying dead on the bed. They also recovered a bloody knife and a hand-written note in French. The note read that Ntongo would ‘carry the burden’ of her two children’s soul.
Following his arrest, Ndossoka told the police authorities that his children begged for their lives before he slit their throats. Court documents reveal that the little boy said, “Daddy, I’m sorry.”
He further revealed that he initially planned to die with his children but for some reason fled the scene before getting caught in his car with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Ndossoka and Ntongo were married for six years before recently getting a divorce. On the day of the murder, Ntongo had just dropped the children with their father for visitation.
