PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine man has pleaded not guilty to beating his 91-year-old father repeatedly with a baseball bat at their home in Brunswick.

Christopher Porter appeared in court Thursday to answer charges of attempted murder and elevated aggravated assault.

The Portland Press Herald reported that defense attorney Rob Ruffner said he may ask for a psychological evaluation later. He also reserved the right to argue bail. Porter has been held on $100,000 cash bail since his arrest in October.

Assistant District Attorney Katherine Tierney said the father survived the attack and has since been released from the hospital.


This story has been corrected to show that Porter pleaded not guilty to beating his 91-year-old father, not grandfather.
