WOOD DALE, Ill. – A son in Wood Dale has been charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing his father with a “large sword.”
On Sunday just before 4 a.m., Wood Dale officers were dispatched to a home for an alleged fall of the homeowner, Robert Castellano.
Police found Castellano in bed suffering from a one-inch laceration near his ribs. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
Police believe Castellano had a verbal argument with his son, Joshua Castellano, 30, of Wood Dale, that turned physical.
Joshua allegedly stabbed his father with a “large sword” that was found wrapped in a blanket underneath the bed.
He has been charged with first-degree murder and his arraignment is scheduled for May 27.
