BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) – A Bridgeport man is accused of killing his grandfather at their home earlier this year.

According to police, 68-year-old Jeffrey Lindo was attacked at his Charles Street home on February 17. He lived there with his daughter and grandson.

Lindo was found unresponsive in the home days later on February 20. He was pronounced deceased, police said.

This month, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told Bridgeport police Lindo’s cause and manner of death.
