Prosecutors say Shehada Khalil Issa threatened his son in the past over his sexuality.By Matt Picht | April 2, 2016
Prosecutors are accusing a California man of murdering his son because his son was gay.
Shehada Khalil Issa was detained as a person of interest Tuesday after his wife and son were found dead at their North Hills home. Prosecutors now claim Issa fatally shot his son, Amir Issa, with a shotgun because of Amir's sexual orientation.
The District Attorney's office says Issa had argued with his son about his sexuality and made death threats in the past. An investigation into how Issa's wife died is still ongoing, and no charges have been filed.
