Dad says ‘voodoo’ drove him to slit 2 young kids’ throats as they begged for their lives

The suspect allegedly left the bodies of his children on his bed, and called his wife to tell her he had left “a present” for her there

A Texas father who is currently behind bars for allegedly killing his two kids has broken his silence, reportedly saying that voodoo caused him to slit their throats.

“I did something wrong. I did something wrong. I’m so sorry,” Jean-Pierre Ndossoka, 62, told KPRC reporters from Harris County Jail.

The father, who is originally from the Congo, is charged with two counts of capital murder for the August 4 slayings of his children, Anna-Belle Faith Ndossoka, 1, and Marcel Ndossoka, 8.  As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jean-Pierre called his estranged wife to tell her that he left a “present” on his bed. Upon her arrival at the home, she found the bodies of her two children.

Court documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle revealed that Anna-Belle cried and Marcell said, “Daddy, I’m sorry,” in the moments leading up to their murders. Jean-Pierre reportedly left a bloody knife and a suicide note near Marcell’s body and fled the home before his wife arrived.

Police reportedly found Jean-Pierre in his car the following day with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Jean-Pierre told KRPC that voices inside his head pushed him to kill his children. However, police documents stated that he blamed his wife for the slayings in his suicide note, writing in French that she would “carry the burden of our souls, me and my two children.”

“I am dying with my two children,” he wrote, according to authorities.

Jean-Pierre also revealed that his wife had filed for divorce and had a boyfriend. Court documents suggest his wife was living elsewhere and had dropped their children off at his place on the day of the murders.
