    Glenn Armstrong was arrested in New Jersey after police said he was wanted for questioning in his father's death.

    A Massachusetts man facing a murder charge in the January death of his father in Blackstone was ordered held without bail at his arraignment Friday.

    Glenn Armstrong, 48, was held in a New Jersey jail on $300,000 before being extradited to Massachusetts. He was arraigned after 2 p.m. in Uxbridge District Court on charges of murder, misleading a police investigation, larceny of a motor vehicle and failing to provide a DNA sample.

    Not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf.

    Authorities say his father, 83-year-old Walter Armstrong, was found dead inside a Summer Street home he shared with his son on the evening of Jan. 11.

    Armstrong was arrested the next day in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, on a warrant for failing to give a DNA sample, which was a charge from an earlier conviction.

    The case was continued to April 21 for a pre-trial conference.
