The Nichols Hills doctor accused of fatally stabbing his son was moved to a hospital because of a medical emergency, officials said.

Stephen Paul Wolf, 51, was moved Wednesday from Oklahoma County jail to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City because of low blood pressure, officials said.

Wolf was arrested Nov. 16 after a police officer found him straddling his stabbed son in the kitchen of their home, according to a police affidavit. His son, Tommy, 9, died from multiple stab wounds. His wife, Mary Wolf, suffered cuts to her hands and face.

He repeatedly told the police, "He's got the devil in him and you know it," according to the affidavit.

Prosecutors Nov. 25 charged Wolf with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Wolf has a history of mental issues. At the jail, detention officers had been checking on him every 15 minutes and officers Wednesday afternoon discovered he was having health issues, sheriff's spokesman Mark Myers said.

"He was taken to the medical floor where he was treated for apparent low blood pressure. They could not get it back up so he was transported around 3:30 p.m. to OU Med," Myers said.

A spokeswoman for OU Medical Center said she could not confirm Wolf was a patient.

Wolf has had mental issues for years, according to records involving his medical license. His troubles began during his first year in medical school when he was hospitalized for major depression, records state
