Man found shot to death in Overton County

Posted: Updated:

A dispute left one man dead and another charged with murder in Overton County.

Deputies responded to a domestic call Monday morning at a home on Hanging Limb Highway. There, they found the body of Donnie Tayes in the backyard.

He had been fatally shot, they said.

The Overton County News reports the homeowner, Travis Melton, is now charged with the crime.

Investigators said Tayes' wife was at the home at the time, too, but they are not revealing what led up to the shooting.
