Following a dispute with his son over not paying for groceries, a man in Arizona was stabbed to death a few days ago.

Fox 10 Phoenix reported that the incident began to unfold during the early morning hours of April 1. According to court documents, Mesa Police received a request for a welfare check for a man. The person called around 2 a.m. on April 1 because the individual was concerned about Jason Todd Jeschor 43, and his father since they weren’t answering their phones.

A portion of the court documents read that as per the reporting party, the "victim was going to meet with the defendant, who is his son, at the defendant's residence." The apartment was near University Drive and Sossaman Road.

It further read that the two went for grocery shopping on March 31 at approximately 12 p.m., and the victim never returned. The suspect, Jeschor, suffered from schizophrenia and had not taken his medication, revealed the documents.

Police said that when authorities arrived on the scene, they found Jeschor with a knife on his waistband. It was quickly confiscated, according to Fox News. Jeschor informed officials that his father was not doing well then admitted that he killed him, court documents revealed. He told cops that while he and his father were at the store, his card was declined. Still, his father refused to pay for the groceries for him. According to court documents, he admitted that when the two returned to the apartment, he stabbed his father.

He used a homemade "spear-like object" to kill his dad. Apart from this weapon, he stabbed his father in the neck with a switchblade knife, which was taken from him when police arrived. After stabbing his dad, he cleaned the victim's blood from the floor and moved the body.

Arizona's Family reported that Jeschor did not admit any remorse for his actions. He said that he believed the murder was justified, although he did not give a reason why, according to the court documents.

He was booked on one count of second-degree murder and one count of tampering with evidence, and his bail was set at $1 million.
