Sherrill, NY (The Weekly Vice) - David L. Trebilcock, a 30-year-old New York man was jailed last week after he brutally stabbed his girlfriend's 6-year-old daughter to death before stabbing himself in the chest.
According to police, 36-year-old Alison Bellus awoke last Tuesday to the sounds of her six-year-old twins (Erica and Lauren) screaming. When Bellus attempted to enter her daughters' room, she found the door barricaded with a dresser.
She reportedly pushed the door open enough to find her boyfriend, David Trebilcock, repeatedly stabbing Lauren with a steak knife.
Investigators say Bellus attempted to pull Trebilcock away from her daughter, suffering several cuts as a result. Instead, Trebilcock reportedly cut both of his wrists and stabbed himself in the chest.
The little girl was transported to Oneida Hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Trebilcock was transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center where he's been receiving treatment for his self-inflicted stab wounds. He was also treated for stab wounds to his back, which police believe may have been from the child's mother, attempting to stop Trebilcock from attacking her daughter.
The investigation, which is still being conducted, has yielded no apparent motives behind the brutal slaying.
Investigators say Trebilcock had no prior mental health issues and officers have never been to the couple's home. The only arrest record available for Trebilcock is a marijuana possession ticket he received 12 years ago when he was 19.
About three weeks ago, Trebilcock asked a co-worker if he could take a break. A few moments later, she found him "sitting in a chair, looking lost."
"He said he had been seeing demons at night," stated the co-worker.
Trebilcock is expected to be charged with second-degree murder once he's released from the hospital.
