.CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. -- A man told police he should have killed his father when he had the chance.
The 24-year-old is now in Cumberland County Prison on attempted homicide charges.
James Kuykendall III tried to stab his father with an 8-inch kitchen knife Thursday night at the family's home in South Middleton Township, investigators said.

The father, who flipped over a grill to block his son's attack, was not hurt.
The pair has a history of run-ins with the law, police said
