Police have arrested 34-year-old Christopher Clark for the stabbing of his grandfather inside of his home.

Clarke is accused of stabbing 80-Year-Old John Pilgrim nine times. Tells police "All I know is I love the most high, and I am Jesus Christ," Clarke when he was led away in handcuffs.

Pilgrim's niece Kim says she was in her bedroom when the violence occurred. "He is laying on his bed, the covers is over him, I'm screaming his name and he's not moving," Kim says. "I go up to him and see the blood on the wall, and I pull the cover back and he's dead."

Clarke fled the scene to board a train and was arrested at the Mastic Beach Shirley station and has been charged with second-degree murder.

Clarke’s sister Erica Quill said her older brother was on drugs and suffered from mental illness. Erica also stated that Clarke pulled a knife on their mother calling her a demon while she was holding his baby on her arms.
