Police Charge Man with Stabbing 6-Year-Old to Death During Home Invasion

Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart, December 7, 2015

Police in Kentucky have arrested an Indiana man for the stabbing death of a 6-year-old boy, killed during a home invasion in a seemingly totally unprovoked attack.

Police in Versailles, Kentucky, arrested Ronald Exantus, 32, after being called about a home invasion at around 4AM on the morning of Monday, December 7.

The homeowner told officials that Exantus broke into the home, and after wandering around for a while on the bottom floor, soon mounted the stairs, entered the room of the sleeping child, and viciously stabbed the child several times in the head “with a large kitchen knife that he obtained in the house,” according to Fox 59.

Court documents reveal that the victim’s 11-year-old sister began screaming when she saw Exantus in the home and began trying to fight the man. This alerted the children’s father who tackled the suspect and held him for police.

But it was too late to save little Logan Tipton, a student at Simmons Elementary in Versailles.
