The outraged family of the mom murdered in a Staten Island hotel for the homeless along with two of her baby daughters demanded Thursday her killer turn himself in.

“Give yourself up, you have no business doing a thing like this,” Cutler’s uncle James Mathis told the Daily News during a brief interview Thursday. “The kids … the kids didn’t do nothing to you.”

Cops are hunting for Michael “Da Kid” Sykes, the father of Cutler’s slain youngest child, for the bloody triple killing at the Ramada Inn on North Gannon Ave. in Willowbrook Wednesday.

Police escorted the family of Rebecca Cutler, the young mother who was killed with two of her three children in a Staten Island hotel, to the hospital to see the lone survivor, a 2-year-old daughter named Miracle.

After spending the morning with Cutler and her three girls, Sykes barged into her room at the and began hacking away at them.

The day before, he had flown into a jealous rage and accused her of seeing the father of one of the other kids, sources said.

Cutler, who had moved to the shelter in December, was the first to die of her wounds. Her two daughters — 1-year-old Ziana, and 4-month-old Maliyah — soon followed.

The sole survivor was 2-year-old Miracle, who was listed in critical but stable condition at Richmond University Medical Center Thursday.

Cutler’s family was given a police escort to the hospital to visit little Miracle Thursday.

“They’re coming along with it,” Mathis said, when asked how his family was coping with the loss. “It’s not easy, but they’re bearing with it.”

Mathis said that Cutler was a “nice person” and a wonderful mom.

“She was trying to do it on her own,” he said.

Investigators acquired surveillance footage showing Sykes getting on a Staten Island Ferry and disembarking in lower Manhattan shortly after the fatal knifing.

After murdering his girlfriend and her children, he called his mother, confessed to the killings, and threatened to take his own life, police sources said.

Cops are scouring the city for Sykes, who may be back in Brooklyn, police sources said.

All 28 homeless families staying at the Ramada Inn were relocated Wednesday.

“I’m trying to make out my words but I’m stuck,” Tiffany Beswick, who identified herself as Cutler’s cousin, said on Facebook. “I would of never imagine the man u have kids by and loved just kill u and the babies.”
