BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A South Texas apartment building where three small children were found decapitated in 2003 has been demolished.

The building was torn down Monday. Before the demolition, city officials spoke about the children. City Manager Charlie Cabler said the community has always told officials that they “don’t want this building here anymore.” The structure, built in 1925, was bought by the city in 2009.

The biological father of one of the children, John Rubio, is on death row for the killings. His common-law wife, Angela Camacho, is serving a life prison sentence. Rubio had told police he believed there was an evil presence in the children.

The children - who authorities said were smothered, stabbed and mutilated - were found stuffed inside trash bags near a bedroom door.
