HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - South Florida authorities say a man faces murder charges after fatally stabbing his father multiple times during a struggle. Hollywood police were just arriving as the suspect fled the scene Monday night.
A high-speed chase ensued along the Florida Turnpike through Broward and Miami-Dade counties, ending when the suspect's vehicle spun out of control.
The suspect, identified as 24-year-old Jamal Hall, was arrested without further incident. He was taken to Broward County's main jail, where he was booked for first-degree murder. His 49-year-old father, Malik Ali Hall, died at the scene.
Police say they are investigating a motive for the slaying.
