Miguel Mejia-Ramos, 28, wanted in the stabbing death of his wife and two children, was taken into custody in Texas Monday night.

A Queens man suspected in the brutal killing of his wife and two young daughters has been apprehended in Texas, police said.

Miguel Mejia-Ramos, 28, was arrested by U.S. Marshals, just before midnight Monday, between Austin and Houston, according to published reports. Charges are pending and he will appear in court before being extradited back to New York, cops said.

Police had been looking for Mejia-Ramos since discovering his wife, 21-year-old Deisy Garcia, and their children, Daniela Mejia, 2, and Yaslin Mejia, 1, stabbed to death in a bedroom of their Sutphin Boulevard apartment just after 7 p.m. Sunday. Each victim had multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, the NYPD said.

Garcia was reportedly a frequent churchgoer and her local parish, Iglesia Naciones Unidas en Cristo, said “our cry for her family [is] that God will fill them with peace and strength.”

“We give thanks to God for the years He gave her and for all the time we were able to share with her and her marvelous daughters,” they said.

Garcia, a native of Guatemala, was also a student at York College, according to her Facebook page.
