Glendale Man Who Stabbed Family Charged With Two Counts of First-Degree Murder


Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas has charged a Glendale man who stabbed his family members with two counts of first-degree murder.

Michael Brian Miller, 29, called police on May 30 to report that he'd just murdered his family.

Cops who arrived at the scene found Miller was honest about his crime: His wife and 10-year-old daughter were dead. His 4-year-old son was critically injured. Miller had taken a knife to them; officers must encountered a bloody horror show.

Court documents state Miller was bipolar and schizophrenic and believed both the "devil and God" made him do it. In another twist, Miller claimed he stabbed his son the most because he loved him the most.

"Psycho" isn't just a movie.
