The son of a millionaire hedge fund manager in Manhattan was arrested Monday and charged with murdering his father — allegedly, over a dispute about his allowance.
Thirty-year-old Thomas Gilbert Jr. is accused of shooting his father, Thomas Gilbert Sr., in the head during an argument Sunday night. Police took Gilbert Jr. into custody at his apartment and later charged him with homicide and criminal possession of a weapon.
The New York Post and the New York Daily News both cite anonymous police sources who say the dispute was over a cut in the son's weekly allowance — though, the outlets differ about the exact dollar amount.
