A Raytown man faces felony charges after he allegedly stabbed his father Monday evening.
Kevon Jones, 21, was charged Tuesday by the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office with first-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action.
According to court documents, Raytown Police received a call shortly after 8 p.m. during which the caller said, “I just committed a murder,” then provided the address to dispatch before hanging up. When officers arrived at the given address, they found Jones on his back on the front porch. The 46-year-old victim was lying on top of him with multiple stab and laceration wounds. While being restrained by police, Jones licked blood off his hands and spontaneously said, “Isn't it (messed) up, I stabbed my own dad.”
A witness said he heard the victim yell for help and found him lying face down on top his son, pinning the son's arms above his head. The witness said Kevon still had a large kitchen knife which he was trying to use, and the witness helped remove the knife from Kevon's hand before police had arrived.
At an area hospital, police learned the victim was bleeding heavily and still had a portion of a blade lodged in his back that had punctured his lung.
Jones told police he had stabbed his father but had no reason for doing so, other than he was mad at the world and did not think what he did was wrong. Jones said he had tried to kill himself before and that he just decided stab his father and had called 911 before the stabbing.
Jones faces at least 10 years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors have requested a bond of $250,000.
