Milosevic dad killed by grandad

Former Aston Villa striker Savo Milosevic has suffered the death of his father - at the hands of his grandfather.

Grandfather Savo Senior, 83, shot 58-year-old Stevo Milosevic in the chest with a M-48 rifle at the Milosevic's family home in Glavicice, Bosnia- Herzegovina after an argument about a property dispute

Stevo Milosevic died in hospital after an ambulance was called, and his father was arrested at the scene by police.

Savo Milosevic, 37, released a statement to Serbian newspaper Tanjug. "We ask the media to spare the family and give us time to cope with the tragedy so we can pull ourselves together," he said in the statement.

Milosevic played for Villa between 1995 and 1998 and also played for the likes of Real Zaragoza, Parma and Osasuna and won 102 caps for Serbia before ending his career with Rubin Kazan.
