"Voices" Told Man To Mutilate Another Man

advertisement

A North Texas man has been jailed on a murder charge after saying "voices" told him to take a pickax to the head of another man.

Nicholas Camfield of Weatherford  remained  in the Parker County jail Saturday with bond set at $1 million after telling  a Texas Ranger he struck  John Daniel Doss with the pickax  "because the `voices in his head' were telling him to do it." 

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the 24-year-old Camfield also said he scalped Doss and then spent four days mutilating his body.

The details were in a probable cause affidavit released Friday by the Parker County sheriff's department. 

According to the affidavit, a friend became concerned that he hadn't been able to contact Doss and went to check on him Wednesday.
