Sources say a Queens, New York, man, Carlos Amarillo, fatally beat his girlfriend, 56-year-old Estrella Castaneda, and her daughter, Lina Castaneda 26 with a hammer on Wednesday.

Â â€œI killed them,â€ he allegedly told cops. â€œI killed them.â€
Cops saidÂ the older woman was found with a pillow over her face, lying on her back in one bedroom of the house, whileÂ the younger woman lay face down, with injuries to her head and a bloody hammer next to her body. Her 7-year-old daughter was unharmed in another bedroom of the house.
