BELLINGHAM, Wash. – According to court documents, the man accused of killing his dad in Sudden Valley has confessed to the crime.

Prosecutors say Joshua Adams shot his 60-year-old father to death with a shotgun on Tuesday.

Adams made his first court appearance yesterday.

He faces a 2nd degree murder charge.

He’s being held in the Whatcom county jail on $1.5 million bail.

Adams’ brother discovered his father, Steve Seibert’s body and called 9-1-1.

Investigators say Adams told them that Seibert’s last words were, “This is not fair.”
