Reportedly Henry L. Jackson, 52, was recently released from prison where he had served 20 years on a murder charge. And after his release he ended up back with his ex-girlfriend Cathy Cappellen, 52, but it may not have been a happy reunion.

Thursday afternoon he met up Cappellen and her son in the parking lot of her apartment complex. Allegedly he began assaulting her. And when her 18 year old (some reports say 15 year old) son attempted to come to her aid, Jackson allegedly stabbed him two or more times. A dog became excited over the dispute and got too close. Jackson allegedly stabbed the dog several times. At some point, Jackson allegedly ran over his ex-girlfriend’s leg or foot and then left the scene before police arrived.
