Son pleads guilty to killing father

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County man has pleaded guilty to killing his father last year.

John Patrick Heller, 23, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree murder and one count of robbery with a handgun.

Heller was arrested in May 2011 when deputies were called to a home at 6149 Sawdust Lane in Winnabow for a report of a defrauding incident involving a taxi cab.

When deputies arrived, they say they found Heller on the front porch with a gun. Inside the home they found the body of his father Tom Heller.
