The father of the man accused of stabbing a teenage girl to death talks to NBC12.

This heartbroken dad says he loved both his son and the girlfriend he's now accused of killing.

Craig Moseley says his son, 20-year-old Christopher Moseley is a stand up guy - says he was with the army - served his country - got injured and came home.

"He's a good kid, he's my heart, he's my soul, I don't know what I'm going to do without him," said Moseley.

This father devastated by the first degree murder charge against his son - is also sharing his grief toward the victim, Christopher's on again off again girlfriend, 18-year-old Alexis Rose.

"Alexis, we loved her, we loved her like she was one of our own and it was devastating, just devastating," he said.

It was in the parking lot of Farmer's Foods grocery store in Dillwyn, where Rose was stabbed multiple times late Tuesday night. She later died at the hospital, soon after, the hunt for Christopher began.

He was later found in a stolen truck on I-64 in New Kent and arrested.

Right now, Moseley is leaning on the support of his family, to make it through this difficult time.

A devastated family, a heartbroken father, Moseley found it difficult to answer when asked about his son's future.

"With things the way they're going now, it's all up in the air right now," he said.

Christopher, Moseley said, is the eldest of his three sons and right now - he says he's still trying to make sense of the tragedy. 

"So many times, young kids today, do not have a father at home, or they do not have the father, the father is absent, from the day he was born, I made sure, there was commitment, that I had made, that I was going to be in his life," said Moseley.

Christopher Moseley is in jail being held without bond. As far as the investigation goes, we're told the Virginia State Police was asked to assist because of the severity of this crime.
