I beg to differ with Tom Cruise, psychiatric medicine can be a good thing...

Cops say man stabbed family over phone bill

ORANGE COUNTY -- Orange County deputy sheriffs have arrested a man they said stabbed his wife and two children during an argument about a cell-phone bill.
Will Edd Dalton, 48, fled from his Cypress Lakes at Waterford apartment about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after the attack, authorities said. He was found at Interstate 95 and State Road 50 in Brevard County after investigators received an "investigative lead."
Dalton surrendered without incident before 7 p.m. Deputies planned to book him on attempted-murder charges, sheriff's Cpl. Carlos Torres said.
His wife, Ritnama Dalton, 48, and daughter, Christina Dalton, 20, were flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center with multiple life-threatening stab wounds; his son, Mark Dalton, 14, was taken to Florida Hospital East with at least one serious stab wound to the upper torso, said Jim Solomons, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
Hospital officials would not release their conditions.
Earlier that night, Ritnama Dalton warned her children that their father would be angry about the bill. When Will Dalton arrived home, he fought with his wife. Mark Dalton came to the aid of his mother, then got away and pounded on a neighbor's door for help, Solomons said.
Deputies had arrested Will Dalton in April. He was accused of hitting Ritnama Dalton and telling his family "I'm going to kill you all," according to a sheriff's incident report. The couple had been married for 22 years, the report states. Charges of misdemeanor battery and making unlawful threats were dropped in August.
