A man accused of murdering his father at the home they shared in Paradise, in Adelaide’s north-east has faced court for the first time.

Prosecutors told the court they will need six months to work out how Mr Russo died after his body was found inside the family home on Friday.

His son, Joel Russo, was led into court late today after spending the weekend in the cells.
