          “He wanted to go get a shard of glass, and kill himself,” Jen says.

          The mom says that Jack has even threatened to kill her on several occasions. “One occasion, he broke a wooden dowel, and he told me if I came any closer, he was going to stab me to death,” Jen says. “He’s told me he wished that I was dead.”
