LAREDO, Texas (AP) - Police in the South Texas town of Laredo say a 23-year-old man charged in the death of his father had grabbed him by the neck and hit him several times during an altercation.

Roel Herrejon has been charged with murder in the slaying Thursday of his father, 51-year-old Ramiro Herrejon. Roel Herrejon remained in Webb County jail Sunday on $150,000 bond. Jail records didn’t list an attorney for him.

The Laredo Morning News (https://bit.ly/23Rs4Xe ) reports that police say an autopsy is pending and the exact motive is unknown.

Paramedics responding to a call reporting a heart attack found Ramiro Herrejon unresponsive in a bedroom. A fire department spokesman said the man’s chest was bruised and there was blood on the back of his head.

Police detained his son without incident.
