Thórdarson’s son has confessed to having attacked his father and having repeatedly hit him in the head. The victim has not regained consciousness since, Fréttabladid reports.

The perpetrator is probably facing charges for attempted murder. The police’s investigation is finished and the case will be sent to the State Prosecutor in the coming days. The results of a psychiatric evaluation are pending.
