Tulsa District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler stabbed at home, daughter arrested

An Oklahoma District Attorney was stabbed at his home Tuesday — and his daughter was arrested in the shocking crime, police said.

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler called 911 after he was stabbed “multiple times” following an altercation with his adult daughter at his south Tulsa home around 3 p.m., KTUL reported.

Kunzweiler was taken to an area hospital, where he is expected to make a full recovery, the DA’s office told Fox23.

His daughter, Jennifer Kunzweiler was arrested in the violent stabbing, Tulsa Police Chief Wendall Franklin said

The situation escalated due to the daughter’s mental condition. After she allegedly stabbed her father, she cut herself, officials said.

She was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
