An ex-boyfriend told police he went to a Miami Gardens home to make amends with his former girlfriend.
Now, Alphonso Jerard Lucas admits he stabbed Terrilyn Gray and her dog to death, and harmed her daughter as well, police say.
“He called me and told me ‘I killed her,’ ” Lucas’ sister, Kimberly Martin, said Tuesday. “He was crying hysterically, saying he stabbed her. He was in shock with his own crime.”
Lucas, 39, turned himself in to Miami Gardens police late Monday.
Gray, 42, and the dog were found dead inside their Miami Garden’s home, in  the 4500 block of Northwest 180th Street.
Gray’s daughter, Curtina Gray, 22, escaped and was taken to Jackson North Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition Tuesday night.
Lucas was booked Tuesday afternoon into the Miami-Dade County jail, where he is being held without bail. He faces first-degree murder, attempted murder and armed battery charges.
