Deputies opened up a death investigation after an incident at a Jessamine County home Friday morning and now they believe they have the man responsible in custody.
Deputies were called to the home on 378 Hartley Drive after neighbors say they heard dogs barking and a commotion outside. Once Jessamine County deputies got on scene, they found the 43-year old man dead on the porch. And now they believe they have the man responsible in custody.
“We are charging 48-year-old Thomas W. Carson of Nicholasville with murder in reference to this incident at this address this morning,” Chief Deputy Allen Peel told LEX 18’s Claire Crouch.
The victim’s identity has not been released.
The man’s body is headed to Frankfort for an autopsy. It is an active homicide investigation.
