A 37-year-old Massachusetts man is accused of murdering his 61-year-old father in a home they shared in Weymouth.
Family members contacted police Saturday night after they went to check on the Lochmere Avenue home.
“The scene they observed led them to exit the home and contact police by 911 call,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrisey said in a written statement on Sunday.
