STILLWATER, Okla._A man from Stillwater has been charged with first-degree murder for nearly decapitating the son of a state trooper.

21-year-old Isaiah Marin of Stillwater was charged in the attack that killed 19-year-old Jacob Andrew Crockett Wednesday.

Police say Marin was arrested Wednesday afternoon after someone saw him walking down the street carrying a large knife. The witness's call came just before Marin called the police himself. The witness told police that Marin and Crockett previously had disagreements because Crockett allegedly practiced witchcraft and Marin "had strong Christian beliefs."

Marin remains in the Payne County Jail.
