COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a mother and her two young daughters have been stabbed to death by the woman's ex-boyfriend at an apartment in Ohio's capital city.

Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner says officers called to the sprawling apartment complex on the north side of Columbus at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday found the three already dead. They are 32-year-old Erveena Hammonds and her daughters, 10-year-old Anaesia Green and 7-year-old Breya Hammonds.

Weiner says Erveena Hammonds' ex-boyfriend arrived at the apartment, forced his way in and killed her and the children.

The woman's current boyfriend showed up and scuffled with the other man. Both were hospitalized with stab wounds, and the ex-boyfriend was in critical condition.
