PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A Portland man accused of stabbing and killing his father was found guilty on two charges on Thursday.
Tyler Nees was arrested in December 2017 after law enforcement said he stabbed his father at the Marwood Plaza Apartments near Southeast 72nd and Woodstock Street. Brian Nees, 64, suffered traumatic injuries and later died at the hospital.
FOX 12 spoke with Nees’ sister-in-law after Nees’ first court appearance later that month.
Carmen Bradbury said the incident had left her family divided. She said her brother-in-law is mentally ill and addicted to drugs.
“There’s the person who we’ve known as family for a long time and then the drugs that change that person, you know, we’ve lost two lives,” Bradbury said.
In court on Thursday, Nees was found guilty of charges including murder constituting domestic violence and unlawful use of a weapon. He is due back in court for sentencing in March.
