The Long Island man who is blamed for lethally wounding his dad while the casualty was in a Zoom video gathering was summoned on second-degree murder accusations Friday.
Specialists state 32-year-old Thomas Scully-Powers over and again wounded 72-year-old Dwight Powers, who was on a video talk with around 20 individuals at a living arrangement on Dixon Avenue in Amityville.
Scully-Powers originally went into the room and started beating him, authorities state, at that point left the room before coming back with a blade. By then, one of the different members called 911.
Suffolk County police say
Scully-Powers, at that point cut Powers on different occasions in his back, neck, and middle with a few unique blades, causing his demise.
“This is a stunning and upsetting case,” District Attorney Tim Sini said. “By the litigant’s own affirmations, he fiercely cut his own dad over and again until he was sure he was dead. The examination concerning this awful homicide is as yet continuous, yet have confidence we will get equity for the person in question.”
Upon appearance to the scene, officials said
Scully-Powers purportedly leaped out of a window on the second story of the living arrangement and fled by walking. He stumbled into Route 110 into a store, where he supposedly took a few containers of Dr. Pepper and endeavored to utilize them to wash the blood off of his body.
Scully-Powers was secured by Amityville Village Police officials inside squares of the store, close to the crossing point of Ketcham Avenue and Cedar Street, at roughly 12:57 p.m.
He supposedly made admissions to police that he wounded the casualty around multiple times and utilized a few distinct blades on the grounds that the edges continued twisting. An assessment by the Suffolk County Office of the Medical Examiner established that the casualty supported numerous cut injuries to his chest and back and was about beheaded with a blade twisted over his neck.
A court order was led on the litigant and casualty’s shared condo, situated at 10 Dixon Avenue, which brought about the recuperation of a few blades.
Furthermore, there was proof that the litigant supposedly endeavored to tidy up the scene, authorities state, including a mop and pail found in the washroom just as a blood-soaked bedsheet found in a trash sack.
Being held without bail
Scully-Powers was charged Friday by Suffolk County District Court Judge John Kelly and was remanded without bail. He is expected back in court on May 26.
Whenever indicted, he faces the most extreme sentence of 25 years to life in jail.
