NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The court date for the man accused in the brutal murders of three Bellevue family members has been rescheduled until October.
Craig Carber was scheduled to appear in court Friday morning to face three counts of criminal homicide. He was jailed on $1 million bond, accused of killing Michelle Pinkowski, her mother Maryea Jordan, and her 15-year-old son Jonathan Culpepper.
Police said Garber stabbed all three to death in their home on Beech Bend Drive on September 2, and then stabbed himself.
Pinkowski's 9-year-old daughter was able to escape out a back door and run to her neighbor's house.
Homeowner Jason Zimmerman opened his door to find the 9-year-old begging for help.
"She said she saw him stab her grandma 16 or 17 times," said Zimmerman. "That is what she said."
Zimmerman grabbed his gun and ran to the house to find out what was going on. He said Garber was walking around calmly inside. Police arrived moments later. Garber answered the door covered in blood.
"He was covered from neck down in blood," said Zimmerman. "It was like a movie. I have never seen blood like that before in my life."
Police said they found the three victims scattered throughout the house. Garber had also stabbed himself several times.
Garber was treated at the hospital and later released into police custody. He was expected to go before the judge on three counts of criminal homicide.
