Ark. man ar­rested in blud­geon­ing death of his fa­ther

The Saline Courier - - NEWS -

LIT­TLE ROCK — Au­thor­i­ties in central Arkansas say a 39-year-old man has been ar­rested in the blud­geon­ing death of his 62-year-old fa­ther.

Pu­laski County Jail records in­di­cate that Bryant Good­man was be­ing held with­out bond Sun­day on a first-de­gree murder com­plaint. The records do not in­di­cate that he is rep­re­sented by an at­tor­ney who could speak for him.

Sher­iff’s deputies re­sponded to re­ports of a fight between fam­ily mem­bers on Satur­day and found Der­rick Good­man ly­ing on a gravel drive­way near a res­i­dence.

A re­port says that Bryant Good­man was near the body “sat­u­rated in blood.” In­ves­ti­ga­tors found a bloody rock they be­lieve was used to kill Der­rick Good­man, who the re­port says sus­tained “mas­sive trauma and dis­fig­ure­ment.”

Deputies say Bryant Good­man claimed he acted in self-de­fense and re­fused to co­op­er­ate with in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
