STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

New details were revealed in the Stillwater sword murder that left a teenager nearly decapitated.

News 9 got a clearer picture Friday night of the suspect and his childhood.

Isaiah Marin has a troubled past. According to a blog written by his own brother and confirmed through court records, their father was murdered in 1998 in San Antonio, Texas and their mother Dianna Marin was convicted of conspiracy to commit the murder.

In a blog written by 21-year-old Isaiah Marin's brother, 17-year-old Malachi Marin, he talked about some disturbing details of his family's past.

He said their father was murdered in their childhood home in San Antonio, and wrote, "When my mom told us, it was kinda surprising because my whole life I always thought that he was like a superhero and superheroes don't just die."

Malachi also talked about growing up in an abusive home.

Isaiah Marin and his brother were playing cards Wednesday afternoon. Jacob Crockett, 19, was watching when police said Isaiah used a sword to nearly sever Jacob's head.

“He had admitted that he had fantasized about committing multiple homicides, and his victim being one of his intended targets,” said Capt. Randy Dickerson with Stillwater police.
