Son charged with murder in death of his father, 80November 13, 2018

HOBART — A northwestern Indiana man is accused of killing his 80-year-old father, who was found mortally wounded in his bathtub.
Fifty-year-old Michael Yakubec of Hobart was charged with murder Sunday, three days after paramedics found John Yakubec sprawled in his bathtub, fully clothed and dry, following a reported fall in the shower.
He was brought to a Hobart hospital with large lacerations to his head and other injuries, and later died at a Chicago hospital.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports an attending Hobart physician told officers the injuries were consistent with multiple blows, not a fall.
An autopsy determined his death to be a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to the head.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Michael Yakubec, who’s being held without bond in Lake County.
