LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- State police arrested a 17-year-old juvenile and charged him with first degree manslaughter. The teen is suspected of killing his stepfather, 37-year-old Hugo Martinez, after a domestic dispute at their home near Harned, Ky., in Breckinridge County Tuesday evening.
Police responded to the home along Kentucky 259 just before 6 p.m. EDT. The coroner later pronounced the stepfather dead at the scene, according to a state police news release.
The preliminary investigation found the two were involved "in a domestic dispute."
Authorities have not released the name of juvenile. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday. It is not clear if he will be tried as an adult.
