Posted: Updated:
(MAYFIELD, Ky.) - A Mayfield, Kentucky man has been charged in connection to the death of his father, according to police.

Kentucky State Police received a 911 call just after 9 a.m. on Wednesday from a residence on Greg Street in Graves County. Police say the caller, Terry Hayes, stated that he arrived home to find his father, Bailey Hayes, deceased.

Troopers and detectives arrived at the residence to conduct a death investigation. Investigators say they soon determined the death to be suspicious and requested an autopsy to be performed. An autopsy of Bailey Hayes was performed on Thursday at the Western Kentucky Regional Medical Examiner's Office in Madisonville.

State Police detectives executed a search warrant at the Hayes residence based on autopsy results and evidence found at the scene of the death. Additional items of evidence were collected which lead to the development of Terry Hayes as a suspect in the death of his father.

On Thursday evening, detectives located, interviewed and subsequently arrested 44-year-old Terry Hayes.

Hayes is charged with one count of first degree manslaughter.
