A Bronx man was indicted Wednesday in connection with the violent parking garage fight that left his teenage son dead this past June, Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson announced.
Andre Muller was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of felony second-degree assault and one misdemeanor county of fourth-degree criminal possession, the prosecutor's office said.
Muller was with his 19-year-old son Isayah Muller at a Bronx parking garage just after the teenager's high school graduation ceremony June 28, and got into an argument with the parking garage attendants over some items missing from his car, according to Johnson.
Andre Muller allegedly assaulted Ramon Hernandez with a shovel, wounding him, said Johnson. When Isayah Muller tried to intervene, he was fatally stabbed.
The grand jury believed Muller "acted with intent to cause serious physical injury to another person" and did cause such injury "by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument," said the prosecutor's office.
Muller, of East 115th Street, Manhattan, remains free on $10,000 bail, and is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 12, 2012.
Isayah Muller was a star running back at Truman High School, and had been set to start at Nassau Community College this fall.
