Texas man accused of ripping out hearts of victims plucks out own eye
Tue Apr 6, 7:32 PM ET
SHERMAN, Texas (AP) - A jailed Texas man accused of killing and cutting out the hearts of his son, estranged wife and her daughter plucked out his own eye and then quoted from the Bible, officials said Tuesday.
Andre Thomas was in a county jail cell Friday night when he tore his eye out of its socket with his hands, said Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary. Thomas, 21, then quoted the verse Mark 9:47: "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell."
Thomas was taken to a hospital and the eyeball was put on ice but it could not be reattached. He is now being held in restraints at the jail, the sheriff said.
Thomas is accused in the March 26 stabbing deaths of his four-year-old son, his 20-year-old estranged wife and her one-year-old daughter. All the victims' hearts were cut out; two were found at Thomas's house. He turned himself in and was charged with one count of capital murder.
A judge ruled Monday that Thomas will be evaluated by a mental health professional.
