NICHOLS HILLS - The doctor accused of fatally stabbing his son Monday repeatedly said his son had "the devil in him," police reported today in a court arrest affidavit.

Stephen P. Wolf, 51, tried to stab his son again even after a police officer broke up the assault in the kitchen of the home at 1715 Elmhurst Ave., according to the arrest affidavit.

Wolf is in the Oklahoma County jail. His son, Tommy, was 9.

The doctor has a history of mental issues that included hospital stays for depression. He saw a psychotherapist in the 1980s while in medical school and was under the care of a psychiatrist in 1996, his medical records show.

A neighbor, Douglas Woodson, told police the doctor "was under review at his hospital for anger issues," police reported in the affidavit. The neighbor also told police the doctor "was supposed to go to a rehab facility for the anger plus drug and alcohol abuse."

A police officer was sent to the house at 3:52 a.m. Monday after a neighbor called 911.

The police officer then went to the doctor's house after hearing screaming. The doctor's wife, Mary Wolf, told the officer, "He's killing my son. He's killing my son," according to the affidavit.

The officer found the blood-covered doctor in the kitchen on his knees "wrestling with something up against a cabinet door and a dishwasher," according to the affidavit. The officer later determined Wolf had been over his son.
