An Olympus Cove man has been charged with murdering his father by crushing his skull with a metal bar.
Officers were called Aug. 1 to the home at 4465 S. Mathews Way (4115 East), where Christopher Lynn Robbins, 29, lived with his father, Dennis Robbins, and a brother.
The brother awoke that morning to hear his father screaming, police wrote in charges filed Wednesday. As he left his bedroom, he saw Christopher walk out of their father's bedroom and take a pair of latex gloves off his hands. The brother went into the father's room and found him beaten and unresponsive. Dennis Robbins, 70, died before officers arrived. A metal bar was on the floor next to him.
