Police: Man choked his father, 82

— A Chestertown man faces felony charges after allegedly strangling his 82-year-old father in the elderly man’s home, authorities said.

On Aug. 27 the Warren County Sheriffs officers investigated a report of a domestic dispute that occurred at the elder man’s home a day earlier.

Police said Kevin F. Colton, 57, also of Chestertown, assaulted his father. Colton was charged with the felonies of second-degree Strangulation and second-degree Assault. He was arraigned at the Town of Chester Court and sent to jail without bail.

Authorities said Colton’s father was not hurt in the incident. Colton had been convicted of third-degree Criminal Mischief in 2011 for smashing the windshield and headlights of a car in Chestertown, and had been incarcerated recently for violating his probation.
