Lengyel is charged with murder, according to Police News Affairs officer Veejay Zala.
His father, Richard Lengyel, also of the Albion address, was pronounced dead at 8 a.m. Thursday at Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston after being assaulted at him home Tuesday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
An autopsy Friday determined Richard Lengyel died from a cerebral hemorrhage, multiple injuries from an assault and heart disease, according to the medical examiner’s office. His death was ruled a homicide.
Police said the victim suffered multiple broken ribs, swelling and bleeding on the brain, but before lapsing into unconsciousness he was able to tell hospital authorities that his son had attacked him.
Police were summoned and Steven Lengyel was arrested Wednesday morning and initially charged with domestic battery.
