Jury rules insanity in the stabbing death of his 6-year-old boy

LEXINGTON, Ky. – A Kentucky jury has recommended a 20-year prison term for an Indiana dialysis nurse sentenced for assaulting a man and two children, but found him not guilty on account of insanity in the death of the children of the 6-year-old brother.

News outlets report the Fayette County jury recommended the sentence Tuesday for the 34-year-old Ronald Exantus. He was also found not guilty due to insanity on a burglary charges Monday.

Exantus’ defense team did not dispute that he killed Logan Tipton in December 2015.

Exantus drove from Indianapolis to Versailles and went into the house before dawn. Logan was stabbed in the head.

Logan’s mother, Heather Pujol Tipton, said she didn’t feel justice was served.

Public defender, Bridget Hofler says: “there is no victory here for anyone.”
