Reportedly, a former MMA fighter from Florida, Chandler Belaston, 34, has been arrested and charged with the first-degree murder of his father. Belaston allegedly beat his father, Jean Belaston, to death with a crowbar and slashed his face open with a large machete.
According to police, they discovered Jean dead on the bedroom floor of his home in Oviedo, a small town in Orlando, Florida.
Oviedo Police Lt. Heather Capetillo mentioned, “There was a large amount of blood around Jean’s body and a pair of black pants that covered his face.”
“Portions of Jean Belaston’s face and skull had been crushed inward with an unknown blunt instrument.”
However, authorities have not yet released what Belaston’s motive was for the killing, but the Medical Examiner’s Office have ruled it a homicide.
Chandler has had a brief career as a mixed martial arts fighter and even fought in one fight against Jose Figueroa, but his career took a major downfall when he was arrested in Orange County on charges including sexual battery, robbery, and drug charges.
Chandler is being held without bond and is expected to appear in court today.
