At the scene, officers found Susan Early lying on the ground in the front yard. Neighbors were tending to Early, who had suffered multiple stab wounds and “still had a large kitchen knife protruding from her head,” authorities said.

Officers spoke with the victim, who said her son, 31-year-old Kyle Braun, had “attacked and beaten her in the kitchen of her home.”

Attempted Murder

Police said they talked with neighbors, who advised them that Bruan fled the scene on foot and indicated his direction of travel.

After a short search, officers located Braun and took him into custody without incident.
