Monroe County Man Charged In Father’s Slaying

CARLETON (WWJ/AP) – A Monroe County man has been charged with murdering his 50-year-old father.

David Killian III was arrested Sunday after his father’s body was found in the basement of Killian’s home on Carleton-Rockwood Road in Carleton.

Police say an argument started after the father went to the house to check on his son and 3-year-old granddaughter. The girl wasn’t hurt.

Authorities haven’t said how the father died.

Killian was being held in the Monroe County Jail, which had no information available on whether he has a lawyer.
