Deryl Desaussure Jackson, Jr., 40, was booked into the Brazos County Jail Tuesday night after turning himself into the authorities.

He is currently charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, after police say on the evening of July 5, he stabbed his brother-in-law Jevell Kinney, 33, of Houston.

Dresdyn Kinney, Jevell's wife, says the family was at her mother’s house in Bryan when her husband started acting differently. Family members called her brother, Daryl, to come to the house to speak with Jevell.

Dresdyn says Jevell then walked down the street, away from the house.

She says when her brother arrived, there was a scuffle in the house among family members and things got heated. She says her brother grabbed a knife and walked down the street to confront her husband.

"I didn't see the knife at all when they were wrestling with him,” said Dresdyn, “And so he ran down the street, and I see the knife, so I’m telling Vell run, Vell run."

Then, Dresdyn says things got serious.

"My brother stabbed him, and they started rolling around all on the ground,” said Dresdyn, “and I went down there to help him. He was like ‘I’m good, I’m not bleeding’ and I’m like ‘you are bleeding!’ His shirt was full of blood.”

Dresdyn says it wasn’t until after her husband was rushed to the hospital that his condition took a turn for the worst.

"The police then said, it was serious, you need to go to the hospital,” said Dresdyn, “Once I got to the hospital, is when they told me he died, and there was nothing they could do.”

Now, Dresdyn is trying to cope with the loss of her husband, allegedly, at the hands of her own brother.

"He was my rock; he was my soulmate. When he died it feels like half of me died too,” said Dresdyn.

Jackson is still currently in the Brazos County Jail and bond is set at $100,000.
