FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a South Florida father is facing murder charges in the stabbing death of his adult son during an argument over the mother’s stabbing years earlier.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said Friday that 63-year-old Joseph Horace Troutman is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of 40-year-old Tyrone Troutman. The older man was hospitalized with a hand injury. It wasn’t clear if he had hired an attorney.

Deputies say the two were arguing late Thursday about Joseph Troutman’s stabbing of Tyrone Troutman’s mother several years earlier. Joseph Troutman allegedly grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed his son in the back. Tyrone Troutman ran to a neighbor’s house but collapsed and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Joseph Troutman told deputies he was acting in self-defense.
