LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -[...]
Stacey Bourbonnais of the Gwinnett County Jail says Garcia is being uncooperative with jailers. "We're just having some disciplinary problems with him. He's not cooperating, he's not doing the things we expect of our inmates. So he is in our maxmum security unit where he will remain until he can follow the rules."
Garcia, 23, is charged with two counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault. His arrest Saturday came after police exonerated Cardenas-Rico, 27, in the killings.
Antonio Cardenas-Rico -- cleared of the shocking murders of two Gwinnett County children -- spoke out after he was cleared of the stabbings.
"I didn't do anything. I didn't do anything," said Antonio Cardenas-Rico.
That was the message Antonio Cardenas-Rico wanted to get out. Sunday night, the former murder suspect talked with FOX 5 News from the Gwinnett County Jail.
"Prayed to God in order that this would come out," said Cardenas-Rico.
Last week, police arrested Cardenas-Rico and charged him with killing Bradley Garcia, 1, and his brother Edward, 3. Edward's twin Joshua was also critically wounded in the attack.
"I would never hurt a child. I would never hurt a child," said Cardenas-Rico.
At the time the children's father Elvis Noe Garcia, who was also stabbed, pointed the finger at Cardenas-Rrico. And no mater how many times the 27-year-old told police he was innocent, they didn't believe him.
"I didn't do anything. So I didn't know what I was in for."
"I can't believe how a father could do that to their own kids."
Police now think Elvis Garcia stabbed himself to throw them off track and frame Cardenas-Rrico.
"He set me up. He is a crazy person."
Cleared of murder, Cardenas-Rico is still being held because he faces marijuana charges and an immigration hold.
"I'll probably get deported from here because of this. Not my fault, you know."
According to police, Cardenas Rico was romantically involved with the little boys' mother. He is married and didn't want to talk about their relationship Sunday. But he did say she was a kind woman and that he feels for her, saying that no one should have to deal with the death of a child – of not only one, but two.
While Antonio is elated to be vindicated of these heinous accusations, his thoughts and prayers, along with mine, are with those little boys and their mother."
