Dead man’s brother: He tried to help son
Sibling: Victim believed he was best able to care for mentally ill child.
The brother of a man who investigators believe was killed by his son described his brother as a compassionate father who continued to care for his mentally ill son even after his son attacked him with a shovel six years ago.
Skye McMillon, 24, was first booked into the Travis County Jail on July 24 on a charge of tampering or fabricating physical evidence “with intent to impair a human corpse,” according to arrest records filed last week. On Monday, he was charged with murder in the death of his father, 60-year-old Steven Nurse.
McMillon is still in jail, records show. A judge has since increased his bail amount from $100,000 to $600,000.
