WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago man found guilty of stabbing his father to death at a Westmont hotel has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.

William Clifford was sentenced Monday in connection with the May 2011 death of 63-year-old William Clifford Jr. of Aurora.

Prosecutors contended the father and son argued during the father’s visit to an extended-stay hotel where his son lived. A witness reported screaming and saw the son stabbing his father.

Police found the father bleeding from stab wounds. He died shortly afterward. The son fled, but returned to the scene, where he was taken into custody wearing a bloody T-shirt.

DuPage County Assistant State’s Attorney Helen Kapas said the 35-year-old Clifford was angry that his father had temporarily moved him to Westmont from a lakefront apartment in Chicago.
