DOWNTOWN — A 19-year-old man arrested in connection with the death of his father was ordered Tuesday to stand trial for one felony count of involuntary manslaughter.

Noah Timothy Loock, of Burbank, was ordered to appear Jan. 15 in Pasadena Superior Court for a second arraignment following the 2008 death of his father Timothy Loock, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley.

The incident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. on Nov. 29, 2008, when police responded to a fight at the family home in the 1800 block of North Avon Street, authorities said.

Timothy Loock, 48, was rendered unconscious and transported to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada said.

Noah Loock fled the scene and was taken into custody later that day and booked on suspicion of killing his father, Quesada said.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office filed no charges at that time, and the investigation continued until the Los Angeles County coroner’s office ruled the official cause of death as a homicide, police said.

Coroner investigator Denise Bertone said a Dec. 2, 2008 autopsy revealed that Timothy Loock died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head and neck.

Noah Loock, a 2008 graduate of Burroughs High School, was released from custody on $25,000 bond.

Timothy Loock, an all-league wide receiver for the class of 1978 at Burbank High, went on to coach receivers and defensive backs at his alma mater until his death last season.
