A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems gouged out his only good eye.

Andre Thomas told officers that he ate it.

The 25-year-old inmate was on death row for the fatal stabbing of his 13-month-old daughter, Leyha Marie Hughes.

He was also accused of fatally stabbing his 20-year-old estranged wife Laura Christine Boren and their 4-year-old son Andre Lee in March 2004, then ripping out the hearts of all three.

Thomas was treated at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler after the December 9 incident.

Then he was transferred and remains at a prison psychiatric facility near Houston.
