Brush Prairie man convicted of killing father

VANCOUVER, Wash. — A Brush Prairie man was convicted Tuesday of murder in the death of his father.

Troy Fisher represented himself and chose to have the verdict decided by a Clark County Superior Court judge, instead of a jury.

The Columbian reported the 43-year-old faces a sentence of more than 20 years in prison plus five years for a firearms enhancement when he is sentenced in Vancouver.

Prosecutors say Fisher shot Edward “Bud” Fisher in August 2011 during an argument over a siding project at their home. Blood but no body was found.
