A St. Paul man was charged with second-degree murder following the death of an acquaintance Thursday night in an apartment building near the intersection of Capitol Heights and Winter Street.
According to the Star Tribune, Anthony Haukos, 44, stabbed Thomas Stein, 61, to death with a scissors in the victim's apartment.
Haukos told police that he was cleaning Stein's apartment and they were smoking marijuana together when he "flipped out," according to the Star Tribune.
The Police report states that the police used Tasers as well as physical force until they could finally handcuff Haukos, reported the Pioneer Press.
Haukos was often quoted in both the Star Tribune and the Pioneer press saying he believed the victim to be a woman, a witch, and the devil.
Haukos told police that he had attempted suicide numerous times in the past year and that "his mind was not the healthiest," according to the Star Tribune.
