On Nov. 12., a woman said that she went over to her neighbors house on Franks Run in Center Point to take care of their dog while the owner was away, according to a police report.

The woman told police she saw a club lying on the floor, according to the complaint.
The woman also said that Ian Matthew Knight was running around the house naked and that he was mumbling saying, “I did it,” according to police.
Police say that when they arrived, they saw Knight laying on the couch naked apparently sleeping. When police asked Knight what happened, he allegedly said that he, “wanted to show him who the bigger man was.”
Police say they found a baseball bat, a broken pool cue, two knives, and a hatchet. Officials say that all of these weapons are consistent with the type of injuries on Davis’s body.
