TEMPE, AZ — An Arizona man is facing a murder charge after he stabbed and killed his father last week in Tempe, according to authorities.

Police said officers responded to a reported crash in a parking lot near Rural and Ray roads late Friday and found a man, later identified as John Fox, with multiple stab wounds. Fox was taken to the hospital where he died.

Fox's son, Joshua Fox, allegedly drove away from the scene and crashed near Dobson and Elliot roads in Chandler. Joshua Fox was located with a self-inflicted injury to his arm and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

He was released and booked into jail on Sunday for the murder of his father, among other charges, according to police. The additional charges were not immediately released.
