NICHOLS HILLS — Police investigating the fatal stabbing of a boy collected three knives as evidence from the home, court records show.

One was broken and another had a bent blade, according to an evidence inventory filed Thursday.

Tommy Wolf, 9, was killed early Monday in the kitchen of his home. He died from multiple stab wounds, according to the state chief medical examiner’s office. He also suffered multiple cuts.

His funeral is set for 2 p.m. today at Christ the King Catholic Church in Oklahoma City. The boy was in the third grade at Christ the King Catholic School.

His father, Dr. Stephen Paul Wolf, 51, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on murder and assault complaints. His wife, Mary Wolf, suffered cuts to her hands and face.

Police reported to the judge who authorized the search that the "father had been found in the act of killing” the boy by an officer responding to a neighbor’s 911 call, the records show. The officer, Michael Puckett, reported arriving seconds after the 3:53 a.m. phone call.

The officer found the doctor straddling the boy in the kitchen, police reported.

"Officer Puckett advised that he ordered Mr. Wolf to stop, at which time Mr. Wolf said, ‘The devil is in him,’” a police lieutenant reported.

Police say the doctor at first got off his injured son but then jumped back on the boy when the boy moved. View/sign guestbook for Tommy Wolf Ongoing Coverage: Stephen Wolf
