SKOWHEGAN — A 34-year-old Maine man has pleaded guilty to murdering his father last summer.

Angelo Licata pleaded guilty Monday in Somerset County Superior Court in Skowhegan. He will be sentenced in August.

Licata, who lived in the central Maine town of Detroit, was charged with killing his father, Alfred Licata, on July 21 at his parents’ home in Cambridge.

The Bangor Daily News reported that police found the victim’s body on his lawn, and that he appeared to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head.

A motion by prosecutors last summer said Angelo Licata had a long history of mental illness and that he told police God had told him to kill his father.
