AZTEC, New Mexico — A Farmington man who said he accidentally shot his 90-year-old father after he asked the son's wife for sex was sentenced to nine years in prison Monday.
The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/ZLC0mo) 55-year-old Martin Casas-Rodriguez reached a deal last month to plead no contest to second-degree murder in the April 2012 shooting of Eleuterio Casas at the elderly man's home.
According to court documents, Casas-Rodriguez said he pulled the gun to scare his father because the elderly man asked Casas-Rodriguez's wife for sex. He told police that the gun accidentally discharged.
Casas-Rodriguez told police his father had suffered from Alzheimer's disease and dementia for several years. As his mental condition worsened, he started asking female family members and friends for sex.
