ORCHARD PARK, New York — Investigators say they've arrested a 21-year-old western New York man accused of killing his father.

Police in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park tell local media they were called Monday morning to check on the welfare of 70-year-old John Keenan and found him dead on the floor of his house.

Sean Keenan was arrested later in the day and arraigned Monday night. He's being held in Erie County Jail and is scheduled to appear in Orchard Park Town Court on Friday afternoon.

Police Chief Mark Pacholec has not said how John Keenan was killed. Authorities say his wife is out of state caring for an ill relative.

It could not immediately be determined if Sean Keenan has a lawyer.
