KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 29-year-old man is facing criminal charges for stabbing his dad with a sword Wednesday night in Raytown, Missouri.

When officers arrived, they located a victim face down in the kitchen of the house.

The victim, later identified as Wilson’s father, was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of multiple stab wounds.
