ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A Denver-area man is facing a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of his father.

Waylon Robitaille, 27, is charged with one count of first-degree murder after deliberation. He appeared in Adams County District Court on Thursday.

The deputies found 52-year-old David Robitaille dead from a gunshot wound to the head. David is Waylon’s father.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 13.
