15-year-old boy was taken into custody Friday for the murder of his father at home in Pontiac. CBS Detroit reports Leo Stewart, 40, got into an argument with his son regarding the son's involvement in gang activity. According to police, when Stewart tried to stop his son from leaving home, the teen stabbed his father to death. Family members say the youth had been expelled from school a week ago due to behavioral problems. The Detroit Free Press reports the teen is currently being held at Oakland County Children's Village pending charges. "Early indications are that this is a heart-wrenching tragedy," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a statement. "A father trying to tear his son away from a potential life of violence and death became the victim of violence by the very son he was trying to save."
