PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Court records show a 73-year-old man beaten to death at his Tigard home last week was found with his legs bound with rope.

The man’s 38-year-old son owed his father what the documents describe as a significant amount of money.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/ArqLWT) that the son, Nicholas Krochmal Jr. of Lake Oswego, is accused of murder in the death of his father, Nick Krochmal.

The medical examiner says the father’s head was battered.

The younger Krochmal was arrested Friday after surrendering at the Tigard police station.



A probable cause affidavit says his hands and arms were injured. He’s being held without bail.
