A 25-year-old Texas man who is accused of stabbing his grandfather to death with a fork did it because he “heard voices telling him to kill someone or himself,” according to the arrest affidavit.

Police officials arrested Kevin Joe Robles in December.

The incident happened at the 300 block of Colmillo. The man who died was identified as 81-year-old Juan Julian Macias Salas.

Officers responded to a 911 call for an aggravated assault on Dec. 13.

Robles father was the person who called 911 and told dispatch that his son asked him to pick him up at a convenience store because he had attacked his grandfather, according to the arrest report.

Robles, his parents and Macias Salas all lived in the same home together.

When medical crews arrived at the home they found Macias Salas with blood on his face and neck stab wounds.

Police spoke to Robles’ parents, and one of the parents said that he received a phone call from Robles asking for a ride home and wanted help.

Robles’ parents told police they did not know Robles that had left the residence during the night.

The other parent stated that when they arrived back home they saw Macias Salas with blood on his face and neck.

Robles told police that he was feeling agitated in the middle of the night and sandpapered a fork into a knife, according to the arrest affidavit.

Robles stated he was hearing voices telling him to ” kill someone or to kill himself,” the affidavit stated.

Robles told investigators that during his agitation he went into the victim’s room and “laid hands on him” and used the fork instead of a knife because he did not want the wounds to be too big, the report states.

Robles remains in jail on a $2 million bond and is charged with murder
