It's been a rough weekend for a Midland family. We knocked on the door of the house on Hoya drive to find out more about what exactly happened on Saturday Night. A woman involved answered the door. She wouldn't tell us her name but did say that she thinks it was an argument that lost control.
"I just don't know what to say," said the mother of the suspect.
Speechless and with tears streaming down her face, she tried to explain to us why her son -- Aaron Evans -- would allegedly stab his brother in law, Jeremy Edwards.
"They fight, you know brother-in-laws," said Evans' mother. "They just get on each others nerves."
Evans was annoyed enough to break the windows.
"He broke it with a brick," said Evans mother.
Sgt. David Garcia of the Midland Police Department said that the fight was originally about Evans' mother.
"When [Evans] put his hands on his mother that's when the victim intervened and [Evans] grabbed a kitchen knife, stabbing the victim multiple times in the upper right torso," said Sgt. Garcia.
Evans' mother says the two men's relationship wasn't always bad.
"It was kind of funny sometimes," she said. "They would horse around and stuff but it just got out of hand, I know, didn't mean to do that."
"Domestic disturbances -- you never know when those things are going to turn violent," said Sgt. Garcia.
Evan's mother wants answers. She is scared and trying to understand for herself why her son would have grabbed a kitchen knife.
"Something was said that triggered somebody," she said. "It was just stupid."
Garcia told Big 2 that the investigation is ongoing and couldn't release any new information just yet.
I asked Evan's mother if she has been to see her son in jail. She said, it's just too soon.
