Pinal County Sheriff's Office arrested a man, Joseph Cain Cecil for first degree murder for stabbing his mother and aunt.

"When homicide detectives asked Joseph Cecil why he stabbed the two victims he told them ‘God told me to do it,'" said Sheriff Paul Babeu.

Cecil's aunt and mother were found with multiple stab wounds.

Cecil was found lying on the ground and his neighbor standing over him because he ran over to stop him.
