Thirty-year-old Beloit, Wisconsin resident Peter Hemmy has been charged with first degree intentional homicide in Rock County for the death of his 58-year-old father, Bruce Hemmy.

Police authorities said the younger Hemmy turned himself in on Monday, August 25, after striking his father numerous times in the head with a hammer. According to reports, he told the authorities that he had committed a crime at his home, and when the home was checked, they found his father.

Hemmy was given a bond of $250,000 and is set to make a court appearance on Tuesday, September 16 for a pre-trial proceeding to determine if there is enough evidence in order to move forward with a trial.
