SHARON — A Norfolk County grand jury has indicted a Sharon teenager on charges of first-degree murder in connection with the death of his father last November, officials announced Thursday.

Lucas Larson, 17, is accused of killing his father, Brad Larson, 62, who was found dead in his Deerfield Road home on Nov. 2.

The indictment was issued Wednesday following a grand jury investigation led by State Police detectives from the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office and Sharon Police.

According to Norfolk District Attorney Michael W.

Morrissey and Sharon Police Chief Stephen Coffey, Lucas Larson has been hospitalized since the discovery of his father’s body but was arrested this morning.

The younger Larson is scheduled to be arraigned at 2 p.m. Friday in Norfolk Superior Court on the single murder count.

“State Police detectives assigned to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office and Sharon Police have been working closely throughout the grand jury investigation that resulted in the indictment,” Morrissey said.

He also recognized Sharon Police for their partnership and diligence during the investigation.

Assistant District Attorney Peggie Krippendorf, who presented the case to the grand jury, has been appointed as the trial attorney.

Chief Coffey remembered Brad Larson as a “well-known and much respected member of the Sharon community” and extended the department’s condolences to his family and friends.

He assured the community that the Sharon police would continue to cooperate with the District Attorney’s office as the case progresses through the judicial system.
