BORGER, Texas (AP) — A Texas Panhandle man has been charged with killing his 47-year-old father during a New Year's Day argument.
Hutchinson County jail records show 23-year-old Brendan Kai Moffitt of Borger was being held Saturday on a murder charge. Bond was set at $100,000 for Moffitt, who was arrested following Wednesday night's fatal shooting of Herschel Bryan Moffitt.
Borger police were dispatched to a residence after reports of shots fired. The father was dead at the scene, where the son surrendered.
Police are trying to determine what prompted the domestic dispute.
Jail officials had no information on an attorney for the son.
