COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man who arrived at his girlfriend's apartment as she and her two daughters were being stabbed to death says his only regret is not killing their attacker.

Responding officers followed a trail of blood early Tuesday and found the suspect with stab wounds that left him hospitalized in critical condition, Columbus police said.

Police said the woman's ex-boyfriend, 35-year-old Wendell Louis Callahan, forced his way in and killed her and the children at an apartment complex on the city's north side. Her current boyfriend, Curtis Miller, arrived during the attack and confronted Callahan, police said.

Miller told WBNS-TV (http://bit.ly/1J2SQF6 ) he kicked in the door and pursued Callahan after hearing one of the girls scream, "He's in here killing us!'" Miller said he regrets that he didn't kill the man.

The victims were identified as Erveena Hammonds, 32; Anaesia Green, 10; and Breya Hammonds, 7.

Miller, who was treated for less serious injuries, said he wishes he had arrived at his girlfriend's home sooner. He said he doesn't know what motivated the attack.

"At this point, it doesn't really make a difference why," he told WBNS.

Callahan is being charged with three counts of murder, police said. Court records for the related warrant listed no attorney for him.
