Nancy Kerrigan's Father Dead, Brother Arrested
The brother of figure-skating star Nancy Kerrigan was arraigned today, charged with assaulting their 70-year-old father, who died soon after police were called Sunday to the Massachusetts home where the skater grew up.

Local and state police were called to the house in Stoneham, Mass., at 1:30 a.m., where they found Daniel Kerrigan, 70, "in need of medical attention." He was taken to Winchester Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to a statement from Middlesex County District Attorney Gerry Leone.

Nancy's brother, Mark Kerrigan, 45, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on an elderly person and causing serious bodily injury. He was not charged with murder. Kerrigan pleaded not guilty and his bail was set at $10,000. he did not speak at the arraignment.

"He stated that he wanted to use the phone, and his father would not let him,'' according to a Stoneham police report filed in court. "He said that he struggled with his father and put his hands around his father's neck, and his father fell to the floor. He said that his father was faking it.''
