Family dispute in Waterford ends in death

POSTED January 16, 2010 12:34 a.m.
A 21-year-old Waterford man was taken into custody Monday night on the suspicion that he fatally wounded his father during a family fight.
Deputies from the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to the 500 block of Stein Way in Waterford around 6:30 p.m. Monday for a report of a disturbance.
When the deputies arrived they observed Jose Eucebio Corona, 21, being physically restrained by neighbors. Laying unconscious in the driveway was his father, Tomas Botello Corona, 65.
According to the sheriff’s department, Tomas Corona had sustained “serious head injuries,” and attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jose Corona was taken into custody and treated at a local hospital for injuries he sustained during a struggle with some witnesses, sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Winter said. He was later booked into Stanislaus County Jail on a homicide charge.
It’s unknown how the father received the head injuries. The sheriff’s department did say he was not shot.
The investigation, including what started the fight, is ongoing.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Ken Hedrick at 525-7083.
