Dad Accused Of Killing Son He Thought Was A “Demon”
Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) Phoenix police say Gary Reagan Sherrill murdered his teen son, David, because he thought the boy was a "demon."
David Sherrill’s mom sent the police to her ex-husband's home on Tuesday afternoon when she was unable to reach either one.
When officers arrived at the home, Sherrill originally told them that David was not with him.
The 51-year-old eventually allowed them inside.
That's when they discovered David’s body.
Police say David had been stabbed and cut several times.
Officers say Sherrill told them that "he was scared of his son and believed his son was a demon and was going to eat him."
Sherrill is being charged with one count of first-degree murder.
