Man faces murder charge in fatal stabbing of father

Posted: Updated:

Austin police are expected to charge a man with murder in connection with Wednesday night's stabbing in the 4600 block of Horseshoe Bend in West Austin.

They were called to the house about 6:30 p.m. last night they found Ray Irvin with multiple stab wounds.

He was taken to UMC Brackenridge, but died at 7:10 p.m.

The victim's son, Alexander Ervin was taken into custody for the crime. 

APD was called to this house in 2011 and 2012 for what police call an emotionally disturbed person call,

The calls were for Alexander Ervin, but he was not arrested after these calls. Due to the murder investigation they won't tell any more about that.

"About all we can tell right now is that he snapped. We don't have a lot of details on that right now we're still looking into his background seeing what could have caused this," said APD Sgt. Brian Miller. "The witness was actually Mr. Alexander's brother, I'm sorry Alexander Scott Ervin's brother, who was also a witness at the scene. The mom was not at home at the time. So there were four people who lived in the residence."

Alexander's brother's name was not released because he is a juvenile.
