A man suspected of stabbing to death the mother of his children, as well as another man, turned himself in to police with his own mother by his side.
Christopher Durr, 21, walked into the Riverdale Police Department headquarters early Tuesday morning. His surrender ended a search for him that began shortly after the body of his ex-girlfriend 20-year-old Rashae Alicia Morgan was found at her apartment around 3 a.m. Monday.
"He made a full confession," Riverdale Police Chief Thetus Knox said.
Shortly after his surrender Durr was taken to Southern Regional Medical Center to be treated for a cut on his left hand. At one point during Monday's search police were looking for a man spotted in the area who matched Durr's description and whose hand was bloody and wrapped in a cloth.
Meanwhile, Durr and Morgan's children, a 2-year-old girl and 10-month-old boy, who were found unharmed in the apartment where the killings took place, are now in the custody of their maternal grandparents, according to Clayton County Juvenile Court.
Officers responded to a disturbance call around 3 a.m. Monday at Morgan's Wren's Crossing apartment and found her in the apartment's entryway bleeding to death from multiple stab wounds. They found a man, whose name has not yet been released, stabbed to death in the bedroom.
Durr and Morgan had a history of domestic violence, police say.
