Man kills father with crossbow in Italy

Rome, June 6 (IANS/AKI) A 24-year-old man in Italy has confessed to killing his father with a crossbow after he refused to give him money.

Labourer Nicola d’Auria turned himself to police in the coastal town of Castellammare di Stabia near Naples.

He said he fired two crossbow bolts at his father following a row at the family’s apartment.

Forty-eight-year-old Pasquale D’Auria, a bricklayer, was hit twice in the left thigh and died of a haemorrage and punctured spleen soon after he was admitted to hospital.

Nicola d’Auria and his father shared a passion for weapons and kept a collection at the family home, but reportedly had a turbulent relationship marred by frequent arguments over money.
