Doctor Accused in Son's Stabbing Death Waives Right to Preliminary Hearing

Posted: Updated:

Staff and Wire Reports

OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City doctor facing a first-degree murder charge in the stabbing death of his 9-year-old son has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Dr. Stephen Paul Wolf waived the hearing Friday before Special Judge Larry Jones, meaning he will stand trial for first-degree murder. Jones entered a not guilty plea on Wolf's behalf and scheduled a pretrial conference for June 30.

Wolf is charged with the Nov. 16 stabbing death of Tommy Wolf in the kitchen of the family's upscale suburban Oklahoma City home.

A police affidavit stated an officer saw the boy with two knives sticking out of his chest and heard Wolf say: "You know he's got the devil in him."

Wolf has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but a judge in January ruled he is mentally competent to go to trial.
