Indianapolis Nurse Admits To Breaking Into Home, Stabbing Children

(INDIANAPOLIS) - For reasons that still remain unclear, an Indianapolis man who worked as a dialysis nurse is accused of driving 200 miles to Kentucky, breaking into a home and stabbing several children inside.

A six-year-old boy died in the attack and his young siblings were injured.

32-year-old Ronald Exantus reportedly told police he killed 6-year-old Logan Tipton with a kitchen knife. Prosecutors believe Exantus chose the home, near Lexington, Kentucky, at random.

Exantus lived with a girlfriend and three young children at an apartment near 86th and Township Line Rd. on the northwest side of Indianapolis. A neighbor said she saw the girlfriend just a few days ago and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, nothing that would indicate Exantus would appear Monday shackled in a Kentucky courtroom facing murder charges.

A registered nurse with a license in good standing since 2013, Exantus worked with dialysis patients. Originally from Florida, he's lived in Central Indiana since at least 2009. He has no known criminal record and it's unclear why he made the nearly 200-mile trip to Kentucky, a trip that ended in what he admits was murder.

Exantus is scheduled to be back in court on December 14. He's being held on $1 million bond.
