The brother of former Olympic 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.
