Ohio Man Accused Of Killing Father With Machete

HEATH, Ohio (AP) — A bond hearing was scheduled in central Ohio for a man who police say killed his father with a machete.

Police in Heath, east of Columbus, say 32-year-old Adam Runyons Jr. was charged with murder on Thursday. They say he called a relative and confessed to chopping up his 51-year-old father, Adam Runyons Sr.

A bloody machete was found in a sink at the home.

Runyons Jr. was due in court for a bond hearing Friday. Online jail records didn’t say if he had an attorney yet.

Neighbors tell reporters that Runyons Jr. had moved in with his father and the father’s preschool-aged son in Heath last month after being released from prison.

The younger Runyons had served 11 months for assaulting a peace officer.
