Okla doctor waives prelim hearing on murder charge

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma doctor who is charged with the
stabbing death of his 9-year-old son has waived his right to a
preliminary hearing.

Dr. Stephen Paul Wolf waived the hearing Friday before Special Judge Larry Jones - meaning he will stand trial for first-degree murder. Jones entered a not guilty plea on Wolf's behalf and scheduled a pretrial conference for June 30.

The 51-year-old Wolf was arrested Nov. 16 after police found him
standing over his son Tommy in the kitchen of the family's suburban
Oklahoma City home. A police affidavit says two knives were sticking out of the boy's chest and Wolf said "you know he's got the devil in him."

Wolf has a history of mental illness and his attorneys are expected to use an insanity defense.
