AMARILLO (August 22, 2013)—Shawn Michael Hooten, 35 of Amarillo, was jailed Thursday without bond after he was arrested in the stabbing death of his 61-year-old father.
Amarillo police arrested Hooten Wednesday night after officers who were taking a report in an unrelated case spotted him walking in their direction.
The victim, Perry Hooten, was attacked Monday night at his apartment, police said.
He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Police said they aren’t sure whether the father and son were arguing.
