KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. (AP) — A Kings Mountain man has been charged with killing his father.

Police have charged 38-year-old Robert Henry Lovette with first-degree murder in Saturday’s death.

Police were called to the home of 68-year-old Donald Howard Lovette after getting a call to check on his welfare.

Investigators said officers contacted a man who refused to cooperate with their attempt to check on the homeowner. Officers found Donald Lovette’s body in the home.

Officers have not released a motive in the death or said how the older man was killed.

It was not clear if Robert Lovette has an attorney.
