Son Fatally Beats Father With Baseball Bat Over Cleaning Argument, Police Say

A New York man has been beaten to death with a baseball bat and his son has been arrested.

Suffolk County Police say Ainsley Murray was found dead in the bedroom of his Islip Terrace home at about 7:45 a.m. Thursday.

The victim's 33-year-old son, Norman Murray, has been arrested on a second-degree murder charge. Police say the two had argued over cleaning the house.

Norman Murray is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday. State courts were closed Thursday in New York for Lincoln's Birthday.

It was not immediately known whether Murray had retained an attorney.
