A 27 year old Texas man accused of fatally stabbing his wife and their two children over the weekend, was found lying in bed with the three dead bodies, according to reports.

Copperas Cove police officers asked Richardson what happened, only for the man to respond, ‘he didn’t know’, according to a criminal complaint obtained by KWTX-TV.
Cops also found a blood-covered kitchen knife on a table, an empty six pack of beer and an empty bottle of prescribed antidepressants, the complaint says.
The macabre scene continued when officers also found the family’s dog lying in a pool of blood in the kitchen, according to the complaint.
