NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a man suspected of fatally stabbing a woman, her teen-aged son and her mother in their Nashville suburban home apparently lived nearby.

Police spokesman Don Aaron told The Tennessean that the bodies of 48-year-old Michelle Pinkowski; her son, 14-year-old Jonathan Culpepper, and her mother, Marylea Jordan, were discovered around 3 a.m. Sunday at the Bellevue home.

Police said the boy's 9-year-old sister witnessed at least one of the killings before running out of the house and getting a neighbor to call authorities.

Aaron said that when officers arrived at the home, a bloodied Craig Garber answered the door and told officers, "Just kill me".

Police said the 41-year-old Garber had self-inflicted stab wounds and was known to have "emotional issues." He is listed in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
