The deputy also contacted 2 year old Anthony. The child was crying loudly. The deputy immediately kicked Anthony out of the house and handed him over to another responding soldier.
The deputy and the first soldier then turned back to Jacob. He soon turned his efforts to reach paramedics.
The deputy then searched the house further and found another knife in the upstairs bathroom. Nelson Patino is formally accused of using two different knives, a kitchen knife and a small folding knife, in the attacks.
