A Calgary man who killed his abusive father has been convicted of murder after jurors deliberated for just three hours following closing arguments earlier in the day from Crown and defence. 

Vincent Fong, who has diagnoses of autism, obsessive compulsive disorder and an intellectual disability, was on trial for second-degree murder of his father, Kwan Fong, 70, but defence lawyer Katherin Beyak asked jurors to return a verdict of manslaughter.

After hearing about a week of evidence, jurors began deliberations at 4:30 p.m. Monday and alerted the court that they’d reached a verdict at 7:45 p.m.
