CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire teenager has been indicted by a grand jury on a murder charge stemming from the death of his father last year.
Eighteen-year-old Joseph Beam was indicted in connection with the death of Jason Beam, 41, in Antrim, Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Thursday. Joseph Beam faces a charge of first-degree murder and is accused of assaulting his father with a hammer and a knife, MacDonald said.
Police arrested Joseph Beam on Nov. 1, 2019, and he has been held without bail since. Authorities have said that’s the day his father was killed.
A spokesperson for the attorney general’s office said they did not know who is representing Joseph Beam in court. A phone number for Beam could not be found.
