(CBS/AP) FORT WORTH, Texas - A man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, her mother and her 10-year-old brother in Fort Worth walked in to a police department an hour after they were shot, telling officers to arrest him because he "did something bad."

Amos J. Wells turned himself in to police in Forest Hill, just south of Fort Worth, Monday evening. Forest Hill Police Chief Dan Dennis told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram  the 22-year-old Wells "apparently walked into our lobby and said we needed to arrest him because he `did something bad."'

Wells, who was turned over to Fort Worth police, faces a capital murder charge. He remained in the Mansfield jail Wednesday on $2 million bond.

Twenty-two-year-old Chanice Reed, 39-year-old Annette Reed and 10-year-old Eddie McCuin were killed
