     CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Police say early indications are that the son of a state senator in Virginia stabbed his father before shooting himself to death.
 
     Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corrine Geller said Tuesday afternoon at a news conference that authorities are still investigating the stabbing of Sen. Creigh Deeds, but it appears it was an attempted murder and suicide.
 
     Deeds' 24-year-old son, Gus, died at the home of a gunshot wound. Geller says the senator and his son were the only people at the home Tuesday morning.
 
     A hospital spokeswoman says Deeds' condition has improved to fair. He was previously listed in critical.
 
     Deeds was the Democratic candidate for governor in 2009 and lost to current Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell.
