Man accused of fatally shooting his father is indicted

December 18, 2018

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a Georgia man accused of shooting and killing his father at their home.

Citing court records, the Marietta Daily Journal reports that 24-year-old Daniel Walden Attaway was indicted last week on one count each of malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault in the death of 59-year-old Douglas Wayne Attaway.

During a probable cause hearing last month, a Marietta police detective testified that the younger Attaway had been told before the shooting that he either had to get a job or move out. The detective also said investigators found evidence of gunshot residue on Daniel Attaway’s clothing and that he told his mother and sister that he shot his father.

It’s unclear if Daniel Attaway has a lawyer who could comment.
