Investigators in Fairfield, Connecticut, don't know if that really happened or not. They never even got a complaint before Jonathon Edington allegedly climbed through the neighbor's window and killed him with about a dozen stab wounds to the chest.
According to Edington's lawyer, the little girl told her mother about the alleged attack. The mother then told her husband.
The Connecticut Post reports officers who went to Edington's home found him by a sink with blood on his hands and arms, a large kitchen knife next to him on the counter.
Edington is described by police as a patent lawyer with no criminal record who'd in the past called them to complain the neighbor could be seen through his window, not fully clothed. The neighbor once did two days in jail on a drunken driving charge.
