Dedham man charged with killing father

An autopsy is scheduled.

DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a 25-year-old Dedham man is facing a murder charge for allegedly killing his father in the home they shared.

The Norfolk district attorney says Alex Anderson is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Dedham District Court.

Authorities say police responded to the home at about 2 a.m. Tuesday where they found 59-year-old Paul Anderson suffering from what they called “multiple traumatic injuries.” He was taken to the hospital where he died.

An autopsy is scheduled.

No additional details were immediately disclosed.

It could not be determined if the defendant had hired a lawyer.
