(KTVT) A Dallas man is charged with capital murder after investigators say he stabbed his 3-year-old son to death over the weekend.

Authorities say Brandon Edwards stabbed his son and wife before trying to jump from a second story window. He was captured by police.

The child, identified in media reports as Bryson Edwards, was taken to a hospital where he died.

"He kept saying all this weird stuff. I want to kill him. I’m going to kill him," a neighbor told media outlet KTVT.

Edwards' wife was injured in the attack, but she survived. A 7-year-old daughter was not hurt.
