TULSA COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR/KTUL) – An Oklahoma district attorney is recovering after he was attacked inside his own home.
According to KTUL, Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler was stabbed inside his home on Tuesday afternoon.
Tulsa police say they received a 911 call from Kunzweiler himself, saying his daughter stabbed him multiple times.
He was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.
Authorities ultimately arrested his daughter, Jennifer Kunzweiler, in connection to the stabbing.
“Unfortunately (Tuesday), I found myself in a situation that I hoped would never happen,” Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler, 60, said in a statement. “Fortunately, my injuries are such that I am able to go home.”
Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg said Jennifer Kunzweiler was taken to a hospital after her arrest at the family home, where she also lived. She was treated for self-inflicted cuts sustained before she stabbed her father in the arm and midsection.
A motive for the stabbing remained under investigation, according to Meulenberg.
“We know there is some mental illness here,” Meulenberg said, “but we haven’t interviewed her” to question her about a motive.
Jennifer Kunzweiler remained hospitalized Wednesday and will likely face a charge of domestic violence with a dangerous weapon when released Meulenberg said.
Meulenberg said Tulsa police have no record of previous criminal contact with Jennifer Kunzweiler and online court records show no charges on her record.
