(Scroll down for video) Police arrested a man who broke into a stranger’s home and stabbed a boy to death.

6-year-old Logan Tipton was attacked by Ronald Exantus, 32, while he was sleeping.

Exantus broke into the family’s home in Versailles, Kentucky, took a kitchen knife and attacked the children. Two of Logan’s sisters were also stabbed during the attack.

They suffered non-life-threatening injuries, but Logan, who was stabbed in the head, did not survive. When the children’s father heard their screams, he came into the room and tackled Exantus.

Exantus has no known connection to the family, and is believed to live more than 175 miles away in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Exantus, who was charged with murder and first-degree burglary. He is being held on $1 million bond.
