Nancy Kerrigan's Dad's Death Ruled a Homicide

Nancy Kerrigan's dad's death has been ruled a homicide.

Daniel Kerrigan, 70, passed away last month after an alleged altercation with the skater's brother, Mark, 45.

The Middlesex, Mass. D.A.’s office released a statement today saying, “The Medical Examiner determined that the cause of death was cardiac dysrhytmia following a physical altercation with neck compression causing injury to the neck in the form of a cartilage fracture to the larynx area, in a person with hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular heart disease.”

Mark was arrested following his father's death, and was charged with assault and battery.
