Son accused of trying to kill his father
? A homeless man is accused of trying to smother his 75-year-old father with a pillow.
Officials say James Crichton went into his father?s Bethpage home and assaulted him last month. Crichton allegedly suffocated his dad before taking off with his cash and debit card.
Crichton, who has no known address, was arrested Sunday night in Manhattan. He is facing an attempted murder charge as well as burglary and robbery charges. Crichton is being held on $1 million bail.
Crichton?s father has been released from Nassau University Medical Center and is being treated at a long-term care facility.
