Igbokwe shot his wife and her mother point-blank, in the head.
The wife, who survived the shooting is, however, said to be in critical condition in the hospital.
But her mother, Linda Larkins, who was also shot in the head, was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the Corsicana Police Department, Igbokwe dropped off the child in a car seat at a hotel and said he would be right back, but never returned.
Since he did not return, police said they were contacted and learned the man departed in a white passenger car.
At about 1.05 a.m., Ennis Police Department officers said they located the white Honda Igbokwe was driving and attempted to stop it.
After a brief pursuit, the Honda stopped in a parking lot, where officers observed and heard a single gunshot come from the interior of the Honda.
Authorities said Mansa is safe and unharmed and has been reunited with his family.
“Our hearts are with the family affected by this tragic and horrific crime and we are working with the victims to ensure they receive support and assistance,” a Facebook post from Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) said.
