East Windsor police have arrested and charged a local man with murdering his 73-year-old father last month.
Police arrested 40-year-old Gabriel Hesse at his home on South Main Street around 7 p.m. Friday.
The arrest comes after police said a family member became concerned when he could not reach 73-year-old Halsey Hesse Jr. by phone and found him dead in the kitchen of his home on Fairway Drive on Oct. 9.
