Son Arrested in Slaying of 73-Year-Old Father Near Rochester

IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. — A 33-year-old man has been arrested for the murder of his father in the Rochester suburb of Irondequoit, police said.

David O. Ramos, 73, was found dead in his home early Saturday, police said. His son Danny Ramos was arrested Sunday on a charge of second-degree murder.

Police did not release details including how David Ramos died.

Neighbors described the slain man as friendly and generous. "I'm gonna miss him because he was one of the good guys," Michael Anzalone  told WHEC. Anzalone said Ramos would often invite him over, saying, "Hey, come on in for coffee if you want, a cup of coffee or something, have some coffee with me Mikey."

Danny Ramos was arraigned in Irondequoit Town Court before being transferred to Monroe County Jail. Information on an attorney who could comment on the charges against him wasn't immediately available.
