Columbus police have made an arrest and filed murder charges in connection with Friday's stabbing deaths of his 4-year-old daughter and the girl's mother.

Police say 24-year-old Kristofer Garrett was arrested Friday night in Columbus after a traffic stop. A police affidavit says Garrett waited outside the Fleet Road home of 34-year-old Nicole Duckson and 4-year-old Christina Duckson and stabbed them multiple times. The affidavit says Garrett told officers he'd cut his hand earlier in the day at Duckson's home.
