Kids Say the Darndest Things … Daddy Killed Mommy, Joseph L. Warnock Arrested on Murder Charges as Protective Order Proves Useless
“Daddy killed Mommy” … Another protective order not worth the paper is was written on.
Does any one remember the TV show, Kids Say the Darndest Things?
41 year old Joseph L. Warnock was arrested Monday night and was accused of stabbing to death his estranged wife, Angela Warnock, while his two daughters hid in the closet. After Joseph Warnock, the oldest daughter called 911 and said, “daddy killed mommy”. Amazingly enough, the murder occurred two days after Angela Warnock obtained a two year extension on the protective order that restricted Mr. Warnock from contact with his wife and daughters.
Joseph L. Warnock, 41, was arrested about 9 p.m. in the same neighborhood of Brownsburg where he had once lived with his wife, Angela Warnock, 38, said Lt. Roger Call of the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department.
The wife was found stabbed in her bed at home on Sunday night. Investigators say the couple was going through a divorce and she had a protective order requiring him to stay away from her and their daughters.
The killing came two days after the wife obtained a two-year extension on the order.
Detective Sgt. Charles Morefield said Warnock forced his way into the home through a patio door just before midnight Sunday and went to a bedroom where his wife was sleeping with the girls.
Police said that when he began stabbing his wife, the girls ran into a closet and hid there for at least 15 minutes while their father was in the home.
When he left, the 12-year-old girl called 911 and told a dispatcher “Daddy stabbed Mommy.”
The story kind of reminds us of the case of then missing 26 year old Jessie Davis who would later be found deceased. The disturbing clue of the missing persons case occurred when her two year old son said to police, “Mommy was crying,” Blake told deputies. “Mommy broke the table… Mommy’s in rug.”
