Cobb police said at the time that investigators believe the child was his.
He allegedly stabbed his wife “several times” with a black folding knife in the head and back of the neck, according to a warrant, about 2:20 a.m. on Aug. 25 at a Wood Meadows Drive home.
The woman’s 19-year-old son tried to intervene and protect his mother, according to the warrant. Elvin Durant stabbed the teen in his upper right thigh.
What caused the rampage Durant is accused of committing isn’t clear, but he was known to Cobb cops.
