Alapaha - A Berrien County man is charged with murdering his son.

Investigators say 56 year-old Lewis Dyal shot and killed 34 year-old Jonathan Dyal at their Alapaha home Monday night.

The Dyals' neighbors tell us that it was a tragic end to a father/son quarrel that's been going on for some time.

But investigators won't release those details.  "We've involved the GBI and it would be premature for us to say that right now," says Berrien County Sheriff Anthony Heath.

They did say that it was Lewis Dyal who made that 911 call and he was at the home when deputies arrived on scene.

Now he's behind bars, charged with the murder of his son.  "My 13 years of being in this circuit, it's a rarity. Its not a common thing, especially this close to the holidays. It's just a tragic situation," Heath says.

Deputies tell us Lewis was an electrician, Jonathan a construction worker.

Both were well known in the community and has left many of them asking why?  "It's such a small community so word traveled pretty quickly and everyone was concerned hearing that there was a shooting."

Law Enforcers say they will now be conducting follow-up interviews with those close to the Dyals to try and find those answers.
