BANGOR – A man accused of murdering his father in Parkman made his first court appearance today.
38 year old Zachery Grant of Abbott was arrested yesterday and charged with murder for the death of 61 year old David Grant.
Authorities say the two got into an argument two weeks ago and Zachery grant shot his father multiple times outside on the front lawn.
He then tried to take his own life by shooting himself in the head.
Grant was arrested yesterday after being released from Acadia hospital and was still wearing bandages on his head today.
Authorities aren’t discussing what led up to the shooting and the Attorney General has requested that all paperwork connected to the case be impounded.
The judge said he’ll take that under consideration.
Grant is being held at the Piscatiquis County Jail tonight.
A harnish bail hearing will soon be held to determine if he’ll be set free until his trial.
