FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Authorities in the North Valley have filed homicide charges against a Merced teenager accused of shooting his father.
19-year-old Anthony Allen is accused of killing his father, 51 year old Arnold Allen, during a heated dispute in their Merced home.
According to the sheriff's office, Arnold had been in and out of jail for several misdemeanors.
