GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Glendale man has been arrested on suspicion of beating his wheelchair-bound stepfather to death.

Authorities say 46-year-old Heath Allen McConkey remains jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder.

His bond has been set at $1 million and he doesn’t have an attorney yet.

McConkey was arrested in the case last Friday.

Court records show that McConkey’s 72-year-old stepdad was a disabled veteran.

Glendale police were called to the home by McConkey’s mother who called 911 when she found the two men on the floor in a pool of blood.

Police say McConkey was mad at his stepfather, pulled him out of bed and punched and kicked him until passing out.

McConkey’s mother told police her son has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, but refuses to take his daily medication.
