SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — A 21-year man was charged with murder Wednesday for the stabbing death of his 54-year-old father last Friday at the apartment they shared in San Leandro, prosecutors said.

Isaiah Bostic was scheduled to be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court in Hayward at 2 p.m. Wednesday on the charge for the death of Teman Bostic, the pastor of the Mt. Olive Apostolic Original Holy Church of God in Menlo Park, at the apartment at 950 Juana Ave. in San Leandro at about 5:30 a.m. on Friday.

San Leandro police Detective Michael Benz wrote in a probable cause statement that police responded to the apartment after a neighbor heard sounds of a struggle and heard someone, apparently Teman Bostic, shouting, “Your dad is bleeding, I don’t want to die.”

Benz said that when officers arrived at the apartment, opened the door and had blood on his hands and clothes and “was evasive and did not want the police in his apartment.”

Benz said officers detained the son and then located the father in a bedroom covered with blood.

Paramedics who responded to the apartment pronounced Teman Bostic dead at the scene, police said.

It appeared that Teman Bostic suffered several stab wounds and officers recovered a knife that was covered with blood in the kitchen sink, Benz said.

When officers interviewed Isaiah Bostic he waived his right to an attorney and “confessed to the stabbing and killing of his father,” Benz said.
