VERSAILLES, Ky. (WKYT) – Police say an Indianapolis man broke into a family’s Versailles home early Monday, wandered up the stairs and stabbed a sleeping 6-year-old boy to death.
The Woodford County Coroner has identified the victim as Logan Tipton, a kindergartner at Simmons Elementary. The accused killer has been identified as Ronald Exantus, 32, of Indianapolis.
Exantus is charged with murder and burglary. He appeared appeared before a Woodford County judge Monday afternoon for an arraignment.
Court documents provide more details into the killing, but it is still unclear why Logan’s home was targeted. His family said they did not know Exantus, who listed on a police report that he lives in Indianapolis, which is roughly 175 miles north.
A Woodford County prosecutor said Exantus, who was escorted into the courtroom by nine deputies and officers, will likely face other charges, including assault, because he attacked two other kids in the home. The attack was eventually broken up by their father, according to police.
