Man Turns Himself In After Stabbing Ex-Girlfriend’s Daughter To Death

ROCKWALL, Texas (AP) — The estranged boyfriend of a suburban Dallas woman has turned himself in and admitted to stabbing the woman’s 15-year-old daughter to death.

Juan Enrique Torres of Rockwall is in Rockwall County Jail awaiting formal charges in the death of Surie Baeza, who was found dead in her bedroom Tuesday.

Rockwall police Sgt. Jeff Welch says Torres called the police department Thursday and said he wanted to talk. According to the spokesman, Torres said he had gotten into an argument with the girl Tuesday morning and killed her in a rage when she threatened to call police.

Welch says Torres signed a written confession.

Police say the girl stayed home sick from school Tuesday. Her mother returned home from work that night to find her unresponsive in a pool of blood.
