Police: 3 Dead In Domestic Killings In Lawrence

Police say a 40-year-old man is under arrest after allegedly shooting to death his girlfriend and her two teen children in Lawrence.

Police chief John Romero says Jose Luis Tejeda will be charged in the triple homicide.

Police say Tejeda was in a relationship with 39-year-old Milka Rivera and living with her and her 19-year-old daughter, Sachary Montanez, and 16-year-old son, Max Montanez.

They say on Monday, Tejada approached someone outside the home and said he'd killed someone. That person called police who arrested Tejeda at a nearby housing complex.

Police say all the victims were found shot in Max's bedroom and a weapon was found outside the house.

The motive for the alleged killings is unknown. Police said they hadn't been called to the house in the past.
