Prosecutors today charged a Nichols Hills doctor with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of his son.

Stephen Paul Wolf, 51, also was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Prosecutors allege he stabbed his wife, too.

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 arrest 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 police affidavit.

Wolf has had mental issues, according to records involving his medical license. His troubles began in 1984 during his first year in medical school when he was hospitalized for major depression, the records show.
