SUMMIT, WI (WTAQ) - There's a report that a 60-year-old man who died in Waukesha County apparently sought a restraining order, because he was afraid his son would kill him.
Summit Police were called Thursday morning to check on the man's welfare -- and they found him dead.
County sheriff's deputies called the death suspicious, and they're working with Summit Police on an investigation. Neither agency has said much else.
The news Web site "Living Lake Country" said a man with the same age and address as the victim sought a restraining order against his son on Tuesday. Police would not confirm that.
The Web site said the man accused his 27-year-old son of punching him in the head early Tuesday, after the father told him to get a job. The man said he went to a hospital for head, hand, and shoulder injuries.
The father also told the court his son earlier attached electric wires to his head in an effort to kill him. The son was later charged with battery and disorderly conduct.
