Murder charges have been filed against a Willingboro man accused of fatally shooting his father during a dispute inside their Burlington County home.
Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Hunter of Willingboro was being held Sunday in the county jail on $250,000 bail. It was not immediately known if he had retained a lawyer.
County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi said the shooting occurred around 10:45 p.m. Saturday. Police went to the home after the victim’s wife — who is also the suspect’s mother — reported the incident.
Bernardi said Hunter and his 53-year-old father, Roderick, were arguing when Hunter used a .38 caliber handgun to shoot him multiple times. But Bernardi declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.
Roderick Hunter was pronounced dead at the scene.
