Grove City, OH — Police received a call from a 13-year-old boy on Sunday morning, telling the dispatcher that his father had just stabbed his mother to death and had instructed him to call 911.

“My dad just killed my mom. He just told me to call you guys,” the boy can be heard telling a 911 dispatcher. “He just ran outside and killed my mom and she’s laying in the grass in front of the apartment.”

The boy’s father, 38-year-old Jeremy Roberts, allegedly chased his ex-wife, Candice Roberts, outside his apartment and stabbed her to death in front of their children. She was there that morning to pick up her kids.

Eventually Roberts gets on the line and tells the dispatcher his wife is under a blanket and that the weapon he used was outside by her body. When the dispatcher asks about what he did, Roberts calmly tells her they will see when they show up.

For the rest of the five-minute 911 call, Roberts can be heard telling his children that they have a big sister who will take care of them. He can also be heard explaining to them that there’s a lot of things that they don’t understand and don’t know.

Before Roberts walked out the front door, he handed the phone back to the 13-year-old boy and says, “One more hug. I love you guys.” The boy then replies, “I don’t want to see you right now.”

Candice’s 16-year-old daughter told reporters that the boy is haunted by what happened that morning.

“My brother says that every time he opens his eyes, he sees my mother’s face and her yelling, ‘Help me!’ ” she said. “And he sees my dad standing there with the blood all over him, and the knife in his hand.”

  • Fucking dirtbag. killing someone is bad enough, but doing it with your kids around? WTF?

    Then pretty much telling those same kids that she deserved it (that’s what I got from the “you don’t understand” statement) just adds insult to (fatal) injury poor kids 🙁

  • Sam

    Wow. So he sees nothing wrong with brutally murdering their mother in front of their children’s eyes, to the point where he asks them for hugs? Can we say sociopath? Poor kids.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    What the actual fuck?  Those poor kids!

  • That poor kid. And how dare this man be all matter of fact about it, as if this was just some matter of circumstance. Fucking peace of shit. And I know this 911 dispatcher is doing his job but what a dick.

  • I am happy that he was so matter of fact about it. He did not run, he didn’t lie and he stated facts. That way the the police and attorneys can clearly understand everything that happened and his state of mind. I am sad for the children and that they had to witness such a crime.

  • Valerie

    OMG, what is with the psycho exes this morning?

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    “tells the dispatcher his wife is under a blanket and that the weapon he used was outside by her body”

    Does he really need a trial?  And, if so, can it be at the drive-thru court which is the last stop before straight to lethal injection table?

  • tdavid6

    “You can listen to the 911 call below, if you want.” For the first time, I think I’m going to take a pass on that.

  • Truthfully it’s not so bad. Everyone (aside from the little girl in the background) was quite calm. I was shocked at how composed the son was.

  • sugarpie

    I am so glad he didn’t harm the kids and he didn’t run.  But WTF dude!  Didn’t think the whole thing through about what’s best for my kids thing.  Mom dead, dad in prison, son has nightmares forever….  and I certainly hope that the older sister isn’t the 16 year old.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Because what kind of father wouldn’t ask his kids for a hug after stabbing their mother to death, really?

    *reads article*

  • LeaveMeBe

    I still can’t bring myself to listen to it. I bet the son was more shocked than composed. I cannot imagine witnessing something like that.

  • Well fuck any plans the older sister had for having a life . Thanks Dad .

  • LeaveMeBe

    So, the fact that there are a lot of things they don’t understand and don’t know somehow is supposed to excuse the fact that he just murdered their mom in front of them. I, also, am glad he didn’t run or harm the kids, but imaging this scene makes me think this is one of the most cold blooded killings I’ve ever read about on this site. I feel sick.

  • The poor boy probably was in shock. He handled himself quite well though. At the end I believe you can hear him trying to take care of his little sister. 🙁

  •  I am not mad about the “facts” he gave to LE to make it easy to wrap him up with a little bow on top.
    I am mad that he acts (toward his child, and 911) as if she was hit by a bus or some outside source of fate killed her…..
    HE killed her.
    It’s like telling his son…(accidents happen, or shit happens) like his hand was forced…..

  • I completely believe that my husband would hug the children if he stabbed or shot me. He would probably still be hugging them when the police showed.

  • First things first, your cat has AWESOME hair!

    I was thinking the same thing. Way to change everyone’s future pop’s.

  • sherrdbw

    “I love you guys”
    Is he kidding his children? I guess that he loves them enough to make them sudden orphans. What a disgusting, selfish piece of shit.

  • JohnQknowitall

    It always amazes me that, though years before, people in this situation is once loved each other deeply and would never have believed that either would ever hurt the other..

  • newstarshipsmell

    You know, I’d be willing to accept that perhaps his wife was an evil bitch, and that their kids would be better off without her around – but even then, he’d have done better to let them grow up with, well, a mother that’s alive, and allow them reach their own conclusions as adults about which one was the ‘bad’ parent or whatever. Instead, now he’s pretty much guaranteed that his ex-wife will always remain a perfect saint, and in their eyes he’ll forever remain the cold-blooded murdering bastard that he is.

  • Agree 100%

  • Gee

    That boy and girl will have nightmares the rest of their lives because of this POS.  Very sad!

  • Athena

    Being an older sister who had to assume custody of my 16-year-old sister when I was 20, I concur.  Fuck this dad. 

    *My sister’s custody was not forced upon me, so I’m not making a comment about my parents by saying this.

  • Athena

    I know, right?  It actually freaks me out quite a bit to think about it.  I often tell my husband, “Now, if one day, you decide killing me is your best option, run it by me first, and I’ll come up with a better one.”  We chuckle, but because of stories like this, I’m only half kidding…

  • CT

    Geez, I’m behind then.  I thought I was doing good with the “if you want to cheat on me go right ahead but make sure she has a big enough place for both of you because you won’t be living here” conversation.  Guess I’m gonna have to expand upon that.   

  • CT

    OMG, you have me falling on the floor laughing over that avatar.  It just doesn’t seem right to be reading this awful story and then I see this and I’m laughing my ass off. 

  • newstarshipsmell

    Give infinite fucks.

  • Dad: How was that for family entertainment?
    Son: Dad, you killed mom.
    Dad: Yeah, I know. Go call 911. . . Hurry up. . . No… Wait, we need a hug, first.

  • derae

    Way to fuck your kids up, you fucking asshole!

  • “Father Asks Kids For A Hug After He Stabbed Their Mother To Death”

    What he actually deserved was an axe to the nuts,followed by tennis shoe jump hugs to his neck.

    Damn work PC … @@@##$$%%%&***

  • Under this particular circumstance the whole hug thing only traumatizes,and confuses the children more … it’s really a second form of mental victimization.

  • Not much of a “dad”,more like a self consumed Bastard.

  • lespacino

    Even if this dirt bag has some legitimate reason for wanting to do this- such as the wife was harming the kids, or allowing to be harmed ( not the case, because he says the kids don’t know a lot of things- if they were being harmed, they would know!)- he just put them in even more harms way by leaving them vulnerable (physically and emotionally now) without any parents to protect them. Idiot. I am guessing the *things* they don’t know revolve around their mother being a whore in their dad’s eyes. Total, worthless piece of shit- needs to be thrown off a bridge…dragged out…then thrown back…

  •  I love a cat with “AWESOME” hair … however I also love bald pussy … I mean cats as well … yes,this guy put a lot up there in the land of Assume.

  •  Well … you sorta are … but I get you.

  •  Hmm … I recall worse … but this is in the realm of personal opinion.

  •  You said it Pal.

  • tinalib13

    You’re a bad boy Ced. 

  •  Once again a story about a woman who chose incorrectly and had kids with a murdering beast.

  • tinalib13

    Anther canidate for the father of the year award….Sigh.

  • To be clear here is a particle listing of what this asshole is expecting from the “older sister” :

  • Thank you Hun   🙂

  •  Agreed.

  • darsa

    Ooohhhh no no no… I can’t listen to that, no way.  I so just want to grab that boy and hug him forever.  What a totally selfish thing to do, wow; how can you deliberately WRECK all of your children’s lives just because your manly pride may have sustained a bruise or two?  Pathetic, disgustic, despicable!  DX

  • CT


  • The 911 dispatcher is an ass.  The boy just saw his father murder his mother and she’s laying in the front yard.. I mean damn,

  • LeaveMeBe

    Stop it, AM. You’re breaking my heart! That’s why I didn’t want to listen. 🙁

  • rensuchan

    Sadly I think his grade goes up to D- for the fact that he didn’t kill his kids before killing the ex.  Too many stories here of fucking shitheads killing their kids before killing themselves.  Though it will be impossible for those kids to have a normal life more than likely, at least they’re alive to have that chance.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

     My fiancee’s much older sister took care of her & her younger sister after their mother died, and, the father didn’t want to keep them.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I disagree with everyone being happy he didn’t hurt the kids. 

    He hurt them as deeply, if not worse than, if he’d stabbed them. 

  • I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to do that.

  • You’re right but I think he would hug them more for himself then the children.

  • Oh we’ve never had the conversation. I’m just well aware of the fact that he’s capable of killing me. 

  • JGo555

    No. I am NOT going to listen.

    Last time I did, I saw a dude die, get repeatedly stabbed with an icepick, get dismembered, f*cked in the ass, & then eaten.

    So no, I ain’t listening to that shit.

    And I can’t stand babies being hurt. No matter what kind of HURT it is.

  • 62julietandvoid

    That poor child. I don’t think I can bring myself to listen to that.

  • Gee

    I think what got me the most was the father on the 911 tape was telling his son, Remember ” I told there are some things you wont understand”?  This is one of them,  ” You don’t understand now but you will later”

    WTF… This poor child will carry a huge burden the rest of his life trying to understand why his father killed his mother.

  • ultracreep

     There are some amazing dispatchers but most of them are just shmoes with a high school diploma and a set script of rules and yes, often they are infuriating asses.

  • chgplz

    “There are things you dont understand”, “Things you don’t know”.   He knows and understands the most important things dad killed mom. After that what is there exactly? A lifetime of pain stupid fucker.Is bath salts in the water now?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Yes, but as mutually beneficial relationships go, you both share the options of ending it in a wide variety of expedient ways. Some are better than others.  😉

  • LeaveMeBe

    I’ve had both these conversations with my husband. You can never be too careful.

  • True.

  • Califboy

     Man I just don’t understand the killing in front of kids, my life is too important to me to be locked up.
    If I had to get a new wife, well hell she is going to be 20 years younger then the perfect one I have now, but a jail cell?? Fuck you, I ain’t going to jail for no one.

  • Califboy

     You watched too huh???

  • Califboy

     These types should be used for bullet proof vest testing.

  • Califboy

     Yep, this reminds me of the detective I saw on a documentary that said people have at least 3 personalities,
    1- everybody at work sees
    2- your family and friends see
    3- the one nobody but you know, every person has a closet and only you know whats in it. 

  • Califboy

     only half kidding… (wink wink) ………….

  • Califboy

     seems like you gals had a blog or a club and my wife was on it, she says one time and your out fucker, so it leaves me with no choice, I gotta wack her, just saying ladies….

  • Califboy

     Mothers in my opinion are sacred of all things living, cannot understand, its not as if he didn’t have a mother.

  • Califboy

     My buddies mom died from alcohol at 42, the dad turned 4 kids over for adoption because he wanted to also continue to drink and fuck his girlfriend.
