The baby who was "allegedly" stabbed to death by his grandfather, MANUEL ROSALES, has been identified as Josue Rosales. Josue's mother is apparently still in critical condition.
Gramps says his actions were in self-defense. I'm not going to even bother to critique such psycho stupidity.
Lehigh baby killed in double stabbing identified

12:37 P.M. — The 3-month-old baby killed in Friday’s stabbing in Lehigh Acres has been identified as Josue Rosales.
The child was the son of Karminda Rosales, who was critically injured when deputies say her father, Manuel Rosales, slashed the throats of her and her infant son.
Karminda Rosales’ other child, Brian Rosales, was unharmed, according to a report prepared by Lee Sheriff’s Detective Jeff Brown.
Brown reported the baby’s throat was cut in front of his mother, as she lie bleeding in the driveway. Deputies say after Manuel Rosales slashed his grandson’s throat, he cut his daughter twice more before going back in the house, on Gilbert Avenue, and carrying her other son, Brian Rosales. That’s when deputies arrived.
Both mother and son were transported to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition. Josue Rosales died. A spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Hospital said Monday she had no information about Karminda Rosales’ condition.
Manuel Rosales later told detectives his actions were in self-defense.
He is in Lee County Jail on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
