Nichols Hills doctor charged with killing his son apologizes

A Nichols Hills doctor accused of fatally stabbing his 9-year-old son told reporters today, "Yes, I'm sorry. Of course, I'm sorry."

Dr. Stephen Paul Wolf, 51, made the statement as sheriff deputies led him to an Oklahoma County courtroom for a hearing about his mental state.

At the five-minute hearing, Oklahoma County District Judge Virgil Black ordered Wolf to undergo an evaluation to determine if he is competent to assist his defense attorney.

Wolf will be seen in the Oklahoma County jail by an expert from the state Mental Health Department. A report on the evaluation could be ready in a month. The judge told Wolf, "You need to cooperate with the people who come over and talk with you."

Wolf was arrested Nov. 16 after a police officer found him straddling his stabbed son in the kitchen of their home, according to the police affidavit. His son, Tommy, 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.
