Ala. man charged with stabbing father over TV

FOLEY, Ala. (AP) - Baldwin County authorities say a 22-year-old Foley man allegedly stabbed his father while trying to steal his TV and sell it for drug money.

A sheriff's spokesman says the father, Barry Garrett, was treated at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center on Tuesday and released.

His son, Thomas Earl Kingsley, was held in the Baldwin County Corrections Center on $10,000 bail. It was not known Wednesday if he had an attorney.

The father-son dispute happened about 10 p.m. Tuesday in Foley.

Investigators say Kingsley grabbed a steak knife and stabbed Garrett in the chest. He's charged with felony domestic violence. If convicted, he could face 10 years to life in prison.
