Authorities in West Point investigate slaying

WEST POINT (AP) — West Point police say a man has been found shot to death in his bed and the victim’s 14-year-old son is a suspect in the case.

Police tell WTVA-TV that 41-year-old Randy Kelly was found Thursday morning with a gunshot wound to the head. Kelly was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police Chief Tim Brinkley says the man’s son is the prime suspect, but his name is not being released because of his age.

Investigators say a woman, whose name was withheld, was there when officers arrived. She directed officers to the body and told them that the victim’s son was missing.

Police say the boy was found later at an undisclosed location and was treated for what appeared to be a self-inflicted knife wound.
