A boy was arrested and charged after killing his stepfather with a sword, according to police reports.

Authorities in northern Georgia, said that the 16-year-old boy is expected to make a first appearance in court on Monday, after he was accused of killing his stepfather with a sword.

Pickens County Sheriff Lt. Kris Stancil said that a relative of the teenager called 911 to report the Friday night stabbing.

The incident happened in a house in a gated community in the Jasper area. Jasper is about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Deputies said that they found 36-year-old Christopher Allen indoors. Stancil said that he was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, where he died during emergency surgery.

Pickens County Sheriff Donnie Griggs said investigators believe the teen stabbed his stepfather with a samurai style sword after an argument broke out between them.
