VERSAILLES, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Woodford Circuit Court indicted Ronald Exantus on five counts in connection to the murder of a six-year-old boy. 

Police say Exantus broke into the Versailles home of Logan Tipton on Monday, December 7. He then allegedly found a kitchen knife and attacked the little boy as he slept in his bed.

Tipton's siblings, aged 10 and 7-years-old, told police they tried to pull the suspect off their brother, but it was too late. The six-year-old died from his injuries. His father held Exantus until police arrived.

A court indicted Exantus Wednesday, December 9, on five charges: murder, burglary, and three counts of assault. The assault charges stem from injuries Tipton's siblings and their father received during the violent incident.
