Nancy Kerrigan's brother Mark pleaded not guilty to charges of assaulting their father Daniel, who died Sunday after a struggle at the family's Massachusetts home.
Reports say Mark Kerrigan cried during arraignment in Woburn District Court, where he faced charges of assault and battery on an elder with serious bodily injury.
According to the police report, Daniel collapsed after the former figure skating champion's brother allegedly choked him during an altercation yesterday.
The incident apparently erupted over the use of a phone. Nancy's mother said Daniel had a heart attack and fell to the ground during the altercation with Mark.
Mark Kerrigan's bail was set at $10,000.
