A Virginia man murdered his father a day after being released from jail on bond, police say.
Langdon M. Conklin, 24, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of a man who was later revealed to be his father, 60-year-old Robert Conklin, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
On March 3, police responded to a call on the 200 block of Woodbridge Road. They took Langdon into custody for outstanding warrants, and he was transported to the Colonial Heights Police Department, according to authorities.
He was processed and released on an unsecured bond that same day.
On March 4, police returned to the same scene, which was Robert Conklin’s home, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. There was a report of a burglary in progress.
Police saw a suspicious vehicle leaving the scene as they arrived and they tried to pull over the vehicle. When the driver didn’t respond, law enforcement started pursuing the suspect.
The car was disabled, and Langdon Conklin was the driver. He was taken into custody without incident.
While the pursuit was ongoing, other officers entered the home on Woodbridge Road, where they found Robert Conklin’s body.
Langdon Conklin was charged with first-degree murder, breaking and entering with a deadly weapon and grand larceny for the March 4 incident. He is now being held without bond.
