A deeply Christian college student in Oklahoma allegedly nearly decapitated the son of a state trooper with a sword because the victim practiced witchcraft, police say.
The two had been playing cards with a third pal, Marin’s brother, when Marin removed the ‘large black sword’ from its sheath and began swinging it around, court records obtained by MailOnline show.
‘I would never cut you, bro,’ Marin assured his brother when asked to be careful.
Moments later, the brother told police, he heard ‘the sound of someone getting stabbed.’
He looked up and saw blood gushing out of Crockett’s chest.
Crockett, the son of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper, suffered several stab wounds and had his head ‘mostly severed’ from his body. Cops found him lying in a pool of blood.
Marin ran from the scene, sword in hands, and called police from a restaurant parking lot.
‘I murdered someone,’ he told the dispatcher, according to court records. ‘I hacked them to death with a machete.’
He then began ‘rambling’ about sacrificing and magic.
Police found him fleeing down the street, leaving behind a trail of blood, the sword still in his hands.
A student at Northern Oklahoma College, Marin was described as a ‘heavy drug user’ and ‘religious zealot,’ court records show.
