A 54-year-old Rochester man has been indicted in connection with the death of his nephew.

The District Attorney's Office says Vinh Dac Pham shot his nephew, 32-year-old Viet Ho Tai, multiple times while he was inside his vehicle parked on Veterans Place in Rochester. News10NBC is told the shooting happened after a verbal argument between the two men.

Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley said, “Mr. Pham’s alleged acts have torn a hole in a local family and left another child without a parent. Intrafamilial violence is a growing problem in our nation, and the death of Viet Ho Tai, like so many homicides this year, is a stark reminder that Monroe County isn’t immune to its pervasive influence.”

If convicted, Pham faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
