SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WYFF) -

A son is charged with murder after he beat his father and caused his death, according to an arrest warrant.

Jason Eric Bishop, 25, was arrested Wednesday night.

Deputies said they were called to the intersection of Peachtree Road and Mountainview Road at 7:51 p.m. Wednesday.

According to a report, a woman had driven by the area and heard a man, later identified as Vaughn Eugene Bishop, 65, screaming for help.

The woman said the younger Bishop was at the scene and when the woman told him she called 911 he left.

Deputies said when they arrived they found the older Bishop slumped over the seat of a truck with trauma to his face.

Eugene Bishop was taken to the hospital where he died.

According to an arrest warrant, Bishop caused his father's death by beating him in the face and head.

Deputies said they found Jason Bishop several hours later along Highway 221 near the Lake Blalock bridge.

Bishop was arrested and deputies said he admitted he and his father got into a verbal fight which turned physical.

Jason Bishop is charged with murder.
