Florida Man Accused of Bashing Father's Head in With Crowbar, Machete

A Florida man is facing a first-degree murder charge after police say he bashed-in his father's skull.

Chandler Belaston, 34, was arrested Thursday and is expected to make a first appearance in court Friday afternoon. Reports say police found Jean Belaston's body April 13 on the floor in his Oviedo home, which is a suburb of Orlando.

Oviedo police Lt. Heather Capetillo says there was a large amount of blood around his body and a pair of pants covering his face. 

Police believe a crowbar was used by Chandler in the attack, as well as a large blade, such as a machete. 

Police haven't released a motive for the killing. Chandler Belaston is being held without bond.
