A 31-year-old Wilton man has been charged with the murder of his father's neighbor and police said they identified the suspect when his father told authorities the assailant looked like his son.
Officers responded to Partrick Lane after a neighbor called 911 at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday and they found 39-year-old Arinzechukwu Ukachukwu dead in the detached garage on the property. He’d been stabbed several times.
The neighbor who called 911 told police that he was looking out the window and saw a man who resembled his son assaulting Ukachukwu in the driveway of 34 Partrick Lane, police said.
The neighbor said he believed that Ukachukwu had recently moved into the house and said "I think I saw my son with a knife stabbing him," according to court documents, then drag the body by the feet to the open garage bay..
