Investigators haven't said anything about a motive, but have said that after Robert apparently killed his dad that he was the one who made the call to 9-1-1 to report the shooting.
Prosecutors said Robert should have a preliminary hearing sometime next week.

I believe I know Butch. Is it possible to see a picture? Was Robert his only child?
