    The man charged with murdering a local student and wounding several others in a stabbing attack at the University of Texas says he has no memory of the incident, describing it as a dream.

    "I pulled out my knife. My heart started beating really fast and no one moved and then I struck a table and no one acknowledged that I did that. They kept going on with their conversations," 21-year-old Kendrex White said in an interview with Houston NBC affiliate KPRC from the Travis County Jail.

    White is accused of fatally stabbing 19-year-old UT freshman Harrison Brown, a 2016 graduate of Graham High School in Young County. White also allegedly stabbed three other students in the May 1 attack with what investigators described as a "Bowie-style" hunting knife.

    "I had a dream. It showed my face and I thought maybe it was possible I could have done it, but I didn't remember doing it myself, if that makes any sense," White told KPRC.

    Investigators have said White has a history of mental health troubles. He said he carried a knife on campus for protection.

    "I am hearing slight voices and it's really weird," White said. "I talked to one of my lawyer's doctors and they went to evaluate me and said I might have epilepsy and schizophrenia and I might need mental health counseling."

    White remains in jail on a $1 million bond.
