A man was arrested Sunday after he tried to kill his father for the second time.

Alachua County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Amir Beg, 33, after he broke into a family member's home in Newberry home to kill his father.

Deputies say the victim's wife, who is also the suspect's mother, found her husband on the floor with a knife lodged in his neck. She told deputies her son had already tried to kill his father before with a firearm back in May.

Beg was out on bail for that incident when he arrived at his family's home.

He's being charged with attempted premeditated murder and was booked at the Alachua County Jail with a $1,000,000 bond.

Beg's father is recovering at Shands.
