SHOALS, Ind. (AP) — State police say a southern Indiana man has been arrested in connection with the death of his adult son from a knife wound.

Sgt. Philip Hensley says state troopers and Martin County deputies found 32-year-old Jonathan Tow with a knife wound to his neck after they responded Sunday night to a 911 call from his father in the town of Shoals. Hensley says Tow died despite the efforts of medics.

Hensley says 60-year-old John Bruce Tow had been in a daylong argument with his son in the town about 40 miles southwest of Bloomington.

John Tow was arrested on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and was being held Monday in the Martin County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
