A 30-year-old Halton Hills man is facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly trying to kill his father.
A domestic disturbance sent Halton police to a home in Halton Hills on Dec. 29 at 11:45 a.m.
That’s where they found a man outside with a number of serious injuries, including stab wounds.
A second man was found inside with a serious stab wound, along with a dead dog.
