A Butts County man stands accused of stabbing his wife and her 10-year-old daughter to death.
Butts County Sheriff Gene Pope said Jackson fatally stabbed his wife, Penny Phillips, and her 10-year-old daughter in the neck Saturday. He believes Jackson meant to kill the other four children in the house as well.
We are thankful that he was not able to harm the other children and that his pastor was able to convince him to turn himself in.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Phillips family.
