A rich kid was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his millionaire father because he kicked him out of the family business, police in the United Kingdom said.
London police said that they have arrested 45-year-old David West, Jr., after stabbing his father, 70-year-old David West, at least 12 times during a drunken rage.
At the Old Bailey, the son admitted to killing his father, but denied the charge of murder, saying he lost control of himself after he was ousted of the family business.
According to the police investigation, the son drank several glasses of alcohol before taking a large knife and going to his father’s house.
The son told his girlfriend that he will put several people in place. The son also told police that he had courage to stand up to his father.
At the time of his death, West had big financial troubles and he believed that his son wasn’t able to manage the situation so he fired him.
However, the son believed that his father didn’t appreciate all he had done for the company.
