When the brother returned around 9 p.m., he found his sibling with blood specks on his forehead and their father unresponsive on the couch with severe injuries.
According to the complaint, the brother claimed to police Jolson said he “did something bad,” and allegedly admitted to a “surprise” or “sneak” attack on their father because “the devil made me do it.”
“It’s my nightmare,” Jolson allegedly told his sibling of the murder.
Police recovered a bloody hammer and knife at the crime scene, and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office determined the victim was stabbed multiple times in the neck and chest and suffered skull fractures.
The complaint states the brother said Jolson had been acting paranoid recently and spoke about “the devil, occults, and how the COVID vaccine was a part of this.”
Jolson faces one count of second-degree murder and was being held on $1 million bail.
