The suspects ex-wife told police that 45-year-old Michael Glaser was drinking and wanted to talk about their relationship, according to police reports obtained by FOX 17 News. The argument escalated.

The incident continued as Glaser cut himself and hit his ex-wife, smearing blood on her face.
Glaser then stated that he was going to kill all five of the children, according to the affidavit. He jumped at his ex-wife with the knife and put his hands around her neck. The son saw this and went to get a bb gun to protect his mom.

The ex-wife was treated for minor injuries.
Glaser was apprehended and jailed on $110,000 bond on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and interference with an emergency call.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
