Bush Aide's Son Arrested in Hatchet Killing

The son of a former aide to President George W. Bush is charged in Maryland with killing a man with a hatchet.

Montgomery County police on Friday arrested 20-year-old Claude Alexander Allen III.

The killing occurred at a Gaithersburg home that property records show is owned by Allen's father, Claude Allen. The Bush adviser pleaded guilty to theft in 2006.

Police say a man called 911 around midnight to report someone tried to break into his home. Police determined it wasn't a break-in and say the younger Allen and the victim, 25-year-old Michael Phillip Harvey, knew each other. Harvey's body was found in woods nearby.

A phone message left at the Allen household wasn't returned. A lawyer who represented the younger Allen in a marijuana case declined comment.

Claude Allen was Bush's domestic policy council director from January 2005 to February 2006, when he resigned following his shoplifting arrest,
