ALEXANDRIA TOWNSHIP - Aggravated assault charges have been filed against the adult son of a man who was found dead in their Hunterdon County home last week.

County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns III says 75-year-old Earl Kerr was found Friday by state police troopers who had gone to his Alexandria Township home to do a welfare check.

Kerr's 55-year-old son, Roy, who also lived at the residence, was arrested later that day. He remained jailed yesterday on $200,000 bail.

Authorities declined further comment on the investigation and would not comment on the manner or cause of death. Kearns said an autopsy has been performed but declined to discuss the findings, citing the ongoing investigation.
