UXBRIDGE – Glenn Armstrong, formerly a person of interest in the January death of his father in Blackstone, is now facing a murder charge, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
A warrant for murder was issued for Armstrong by Uxbridge First Assistant Clerk Magistrate Nancy Zagaglia on Tuesday.
Armstrong, 48, remains in a New Jersey jail on $300,000 bail and continues to fight rendition to Massachusetts.
His father, 83-year-old Walter Armstrong, was found dead on the night of Jan. 11 inside the home he shared with his son at 36 Summer St., Blackstone.
Glenn Armstrong was arrested on Jan. 12 in Mount Laurel, N.J. on a warrant out of Uxbridge District Court for failing to give a DNA sample. That charge stemmed from an earlier conviction.
The Worcester County District Attorney’s Office is preparing a governor’s warrant requisition application. The District Attorney will apply to the Massachusetts governor to requisition a governor’s warrant from the governor of New Jersey. Up to 90 days is permitted to have a governor’s warrant served upon a defendant who is out of state.
