Authorities Say Father Killed Son Over Watching Football
Authorities in Morgan County, Indiana arrested David Carrender for the murder of his 19-year-old son this weekend. The argument, according to police, stemmed from whether to stay at a bar watching football.
Morgan County Sheriff Robert Downey said the Carrenders had been out watching football games at a restaurant or bar when they started fighting over whether to return home. The son wanted to go home. The father did not.
The argument continued after the pair returned home, Downey said. “It appears the father retrieved a handgun and shot his son, it appears, six times.”
Six times. Police said alcohol was likely a factor.
