VERSAILLES, Kentucky — Police in Kentucky have arrested an Indiana man accused of stabbing a six-year-old boy to death during a home burglary Monday, December 7th.

Authorities in Versailles, Kentucky were called to a home on Douglas Avenue around 4:00 a.m.

A homeowner contacted 911 dispatchers to report an armed intruder inside the home.

According to court documents, the intruder, later identified as 32-year-old Ronald Exantus wandered around the home before walking up the stairs and stabbing a sleeping six-year-old boy several times in the head “with a large kitchen knife that he obtained in the house.”

The boy was identified as Logan Tipton, a student at Simmons Elementary School in Versailles.

Court documents show Tipton’s 11-year-old sister woke up, saw Exantus in the bedroom, and started screaming and trying to fight him.

The police report says Exantus confessed to stabbing the boy during an interview with detectives.

Their father rushed to the bedroom and detained Exantus until police arrived.

Exantus was taken to the Woodford County Detention Center on charges of murder and burglary.

Six-year-old Logan Tipton loved to play football with his friends, and he joined the Woodford Youth Football League this year.

The league shared photos of Logan with the caption: “Rest in Peace baby Logan. We will miss you. You were small but you were fierce.”

A friend of the Tipton family set up a Meal Train that provides an opportunity for volunteers to prepare meals for them.

    What the hell?! A large kitchen knife from the kitchen?! What is wrong with people?! The horror of walking into your poor son’s room to find him in bed like that. Pure nightmare. No coming back from that.

    RIP Logan and sorry to the family so very much for your loss!! I think like Texas handles situations like this a life for a life not the death penalty to just get a free ride and pass away. This Killer should know his day of death and let him count down the seconds as Logans family has to count year after year on Logans Birthdays that he will not be with them.
