A Dedham, Massachusetts man accused of murdering his father in the home they shared early Tuesday morning is being held without bail.
Alex Anderson, 25, of Lower East Street, was arraigned in court Tuesday.
Police responded to the home around 2 a.m. and found Paul Anderson, 59, suffering from multiple traumatic injuries. He was taken to a hospital and was later pronounced dead.
Prosecutors say Alex called 911 and admitted to stabbing his father in the face, punching him, hitting him with a hammer and pushing him down the stairs.
A probable cause hearing will be held on November 28.
The case remains under active investigation.
