Police say a mom and her 5-year-old son were fatally stabbed in a Duanesburg home on Wednesday.

A 2-year-old boy was also stabbed and is in stable condition.

It happened around 9:15 p.m. Wednesday in a home on Duanesburg Road, near Depot Road.

More than a dozen police vehicles were on scene.

Nelson Patino, 47, is now facing murder, attempted murder and weapons possession charges. Police say Patino contacted them shortly after the stabbing. He was arraigned in Duanesburg Town Court at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
