NEWPORT, Maine (AP) – A Newport man is being charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of his father.

The Maine State Police says that Perley Goodrich Jr., was charged Friday, several hours after he was captured at a Newport convenience store.

A waitress recognized the 45-year-old Goodrich and called police.

He offered no resistance.

Police have been searching for Goodrich since Monday night after Goodrich’s father, 76-year-old Perley Goodrich Sr., was shot and killed and his mother, 64-year-old Sandra Goodrich, was beaten at the home they all shared.

Goodrich is charged with murder and aggravated assault.

Jail officials didn’t have any record of Goodrich having a lawyer.
