A Northern California man is accused of stabbing his father with a pair of scissors before using a power saw to slice off his own hands during a violent dispute.

Jason Dunn, 27, pleaded not guilty on Monday in a Shasta County courtroom to an attempted murder charge in the attack on his father, Gregory.

The suspect appeared in court with his hands reattached at the wrist but heavily bandaged.

According to court records, deputies who went to a Redding area home June 17 found the elder Dunn lying in the driveway with multiple stab wounds and his son standing nearby with both of his hands severed at the wrist.

Authorities said Jason Dunn acknowledged stabbing his father and cutting off his own hands following a heated argument.

Dunn is being held on $575,000 bail and is due back in court August 15, according to The Record-Searchlight of Redding.

Deputies responded to a home on Scheer Drive in Redding at around 3.30pm on June 17 after receiving a report of a disturbance.

In the driveway, the officers discovered 59-year-old Gregory Dunn lying on the ground with multiple stab wounds to his neck, throat and upper body, the stationKRCR-TVreported.

'After stabbing his father multiple times, Jason Dunn said he then used a power saw to sever both his hands,' Detective Will Gardner wrote in his arrest report.

Both the father and son were taken to Mercy Medical Center, where doctors were able to surgically reattach Jason's hands.

During a bedside interview with police, the 27-year-old reportedly admitted to stabbing his father.

Neighbors on Scheer Drive told the paper that the Dunns had a turbulent relationship and a times could be heard yelling at each other.

ok, I can definitely see how one could saw off the 1st hand... but how the fuck do you do the other one after that? This guy's the MacGyver of traumatic amputation

back in school I had to research horrific industrial accidents for a class I was taking... this one book was nothing but gruesome suicides and accidents, one guy killed himself intentionally by PULLING HIMSELF COMPLETELY THROUGH a bandsaw, his upper torso was still on the table and his legs were off doing their own thing couple feet away

His legs moonwalked away and were never seen again.
