HOUSTON — A man accused of murdering the mother of his three young children in a jealous rage turns himself into police.

Darrell Mitchell, 28, surrendered last night.

Investigators say he fatally shot his ex-girlfriend, 23-year-old Lakeisha Lewis, early yesterday morning inside her North Houston apartment.

He also shot her new boyfriend leaving him in critical condition. A witness told police Mitchell confessed to the murder saying, “You will have to raise the kids now.”

Fortunately,  their three young children aged 5, 3 and 1 were not home at the time of the shooting.

He’s set to appear in PC court this morning.
