The District Attorneys office said Friday that 69-year-old Shehada Issa had threatened to kill his 29-year-old son, Amir, several times because of his sexual orientation. Issa was arrested Tuesday after Los Angeles police officers found the young mans body outside a North Hills house. Issas wife was found stabbed to death inside the house. Detectives said Issa told officers he found his wifes body in a bathroom. He said he shot his son in self-defense because the young man was threatening him with a knife. Detectives said no knife was found at the scene. An investigation into who killed Issas wife continues.
