Released by Henderson County Sheriff:

(Athens) – Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse Wednesday said Travis Hollis Taylor was charged with murder following a Tuesday night domestic argument that left his brother-in-law dead.

Taylor, 44, of Frankston, is being held in the Henderson County Jail after he allegedly killed Michael Barton, shooting him with a shotgun.

After 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a residence in the 1600 block of N. Elm Street in Poynor.

There, they found the deceased victim, 47, also of Frankston, with gun-shot wounds.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by members of the Henderson County District Attorney’s Office and the Texas Rangers with the investigation.

Henderson County Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 Milton Adams worked the Inquest and ordered the victim to be taken to Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences for an autopsy.

Henderson County 3rd District Judge Mark Calhoun issued two search warrants during the investigation for the location.

“This was a disagreement that got tragically out of hand,” Sheriff Hillhouse said. “Thankfully, no one else was hurt and the violence was contained.”
