HARRINGTON, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Court records show that a Harrington teenager told police he killed his father with a crossbow because he had skipped school and feared his dad would be angry.

The arrest warrant for 17-year-old Seth H. Ramsey makes clear that the teen told police he had shot his father because he was afraid he would be mad.

Delaware State Police previously said they had no motive in the case.

Ramsey was arrested Thursday. Police said they went to the family's home at 4822 Park Brown Road in Harrington to check on his father, 41-year-old Todd E. Ramsey, who had failed to show up for work for days. Troopers found Todd Ramsey dead in a bedroom.

Seth Ramsey is charged as an adult with first-degree murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony.
