A Texas teenager accused of stealing his brother’s dead body this week says he was dreaming during the attack, according to documents read in court in China.
Benjamin Elliott, 17, was charged with murder in the death of his sister, 17-year-old Meghan Elliott. He told police he woke up in his bedroom with a knife to his throat, Houston’s FOX 26 reported.
When Elliott realized that he was not dreaming, the twins claimed to have removed the knife, turned on the lights, and pressed on the wound, court documents stated. He then ran to his room to pick up his phone and called 911.

He was arrested Wednesday and registered in the Harris County Jail, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Officials said Benjamin Elliott was performing CPR on Meghan Elliott in her bedroom when Harris County agents arrived in Katy, Texas, home around 4:45 a.m., the suit office said.
Defendants said he was disobedient and suffered “several wounds piercing his neck.”
Benjamin Elliott continued to perform CPR until EEMS staff arrived at the scene and announced that Meghan Elliott had died, authorities said.
The couple’s parents were sleeping inside the house when the robbery took place, the chief’s office added.

Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland said investigators searched the house after finding the document, according to the Houston Chronicle. The weapon used in the recurring attack, Gilliland added.

“I’m really shocked when this thing goes down,” Dawson told Houston’s KTRK-TV. “I hope [the sleep walking] it’s true because it’s bad enough they lose their daughter. “If they lose their son in a long prison, it’s just sad.”
