Allen Man Accused of Strangling Son Heard “Voices”

Court documents show a 33-year-old Allen man who is accused of strangling his 2-year-old son to death told a 911 dispatcher "voices in his head" tried to stop him.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Toby Payne called 911 on Tuesday and told a dispatcher that his son had stopped breathing.

When police arrived, they found Payne in a hallway, mumbling and crying.

Two-year-old Sean Payne was facedown on a floor.

While giving the child CPR, Payne told one of the officers he had strangled the child.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner has ruled Sean Payne died Wednesday at Children's Medical Center in Dallas.
