Police have recently connected an alleged Bronx killer to murder of both his father and girlfriend just minutes apart from one another in the 43rd Precinct.

It began when Jean Carlo Jimenez, a 29-year-old man with a history of arrests allegedly fatally stabbed his father, 60-year-old Ramon Jimenez, who also lived at the same address, according to police.

During that Sunday, March 1 killing at about 7:10 p.m., Jimenez also allegedly stabbed a 34-year-old man, believed to be his brother, who later recovered from his wounds at Jacobi Hospital while also assaulting a 51-year-old woman who is believed to be family.

However, she refused medical attention on scene, police sources said.

Shortly after at about 7:37 p.m., Jimenez then went to a neighboring home where he allegedly stabbed his girlfriend, 29-year-old woman Mercy L. Capacette to death in a third floor hallway, according to police.

Jimenez was originally arrested on murder charges for Capacette at the time and was recently tied to the other killing by police.

Ramon Jimenez died from his wounds on Thursday, April, 16, the NYPD reported.

Police have not determined a motive for the killings at this time.
