Mark Regan, 38, was sentenced today to life in prison for murdering his father, also named Mark Regan, in their Perham Street home on March 14, 2014, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Because a Suffolk Superior Court jury found Regan guilty of second-degree murder, he would be eligible for parole after 15 years. If he were paroled, he would have to serve two years in jail for unlawful possession of a firearm, the DA's office says.
Prosecutors say the younger Regan fired several shots while his father lay in bed. Police found the son hiding in the attic after somebody called police to request they check on the father.
