A DAD accused of stabbing his baby son and girlfriend to death says he can't remember anything because he "blacked out" on alcohol.
Kendall Rashad Ramsey, 21, was charged with the murder of his seven-month-old son, Kainoa Ramsey, and 23-year-old girlfriend Kayla Holder at an apartment complex in Honolulu, Hawaii last week.
Appearing in court via video conference on Monday, Ramsey said he "blacked out" from drinking on the night his son and girlfriend were killed, according to court documents.
Ramsey did say, however, he remembered arguing with Holder about their child.
It was only when a friend of the woman went to check on the pair and found the mother and baby dead and called 911 that their bodies were discovered, the Star Advertiser reported.
Police said Holder died of at least one stab wound, however the medical examiner has not yet ruled on a cause of death.
Ramsey was arrested on Friday and reportedly attempted to flee the scene when police tried to take him into custody.
While fleeing from police in a car, he crashed into another vehicle hours later.
Police eventually caught up with Ramsey where he was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted murder in connection with the car crash.
Holder’s mother, Michelle Chamberlain, told Hawaii News Now that her daughter moved to Hawaii in 2014 after previously living in New York.
Ms Chamberlain said: "She got a job, joined the military, enrolled in school and started living her dream.
"[Kainoa] was a sweet boy. He was a good boy. He was just angelic. He had a good personality. He wasn’t a fussy baby – you met his basic needs and he was good.’"
A Gofundme page describes Holder as "beautiful inside and out" who "lived her short 23 years on this Earth to the fullest."
"Their lights were dimmed way too soon, but their afterglow shines bright," the page reads.
Authorities have not given a motive for the alleged murders.
