August 22, 2019

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A central Alabama man is charged with murder in the shooting death of his father.

Montgomery County sheriff’s authorities tell news outlets that 35-year-old Keith Scarborough is being held in the slaying of 72-year-old Jerry Scarborough.

Officers called to a rural home found the older man dead of a gunshot wound early Wednesday.

Sheriff’s Capt. George Beaudry says it’s not unclear what prompted the gunfire.

Court records aren’t available to show whether Scarborough has an attorney to speak on his behalf.
