It's still not clear why a Houston father cut the throats of his two children over the weekend, killing them both.

Jean Pierre, 62, allegedly called his estranged wife to tell her that he left a "present" on his bed-the "present" apparently being the bodies of their two young children.

The father told police the toddler "just kept crying", court documents said.

Ndossoka was found alive a day later in his vehicle parked in Pasedena.

Friends left balloons and candles Tuesday at the apartment where the children died, their mother had moved out recently with them but continued to let them see their father.

Ntongo went to the apartment and called 911 when she found the children dead, the records show.

Court records say on Saturday, he called her multiple times, saying he had killed the children and had left quote "a present" for her at the apartment on Fondren, TX.

Jean Pierre Ndossoka is charged with two counts of capital murder in the deaths of his children, Marcel Ndossoka and 1-year-old Anna-Belle Faith Ndossoka.

If convicted he could face the death penalty. He also said she needed to come to his place and there was a key under the mat, according to court documents.

Ndossoka had already fled the scene.

Police reported finding a bloody knife at the apartment and a handwritten note on the bed near the 8-year-old boy.

Instead he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday and remains hospitalized. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Though he initially said he didn't remember what happened, he eventually confessed to investigators that he "did something bad" and reported having high blood pressure.

Ndossoka appeared to sign the note that indicated he meant to die with his children.

"The defendant then admitted that he had done something to his children and when asked 'what?' he motioned towards his neck", court documents stated.
