David St. Onge headed to trial

PLYMOUTH TWP., Pa. -

A Montgomery County man accused of killing his father is heading to trial and facing new charges.

All charges against David St. Onge Sr. were held for court during his preliminary hearing Monday.

St. Onge, 59, hit his 88-year-old father, Jack, in the back of the head with a flashlight on June 27 after his father threatened to kick him out of their home in Plymouth Township, police said.

St. Onge then enlisted his son to help dump the body, which was later found in Susquehanna County, police said.

St. Onge was also charged Monday with using his father's credit cards after the killing. His arraignment on the new charges is scheduled for Aug. 15.
