Alabama Father Charged With Shooting and Killing His Own Son

A Tuscaloosa County man is facing a possible death sentence in the shooting death of his own son.

Tuscaloosa County sheriff's officials say 55-year-old Henry Butler "Hank" Hanly II of Duncanville is accused of capital murder in the slaying of his son, John Hanly.

The younger man died on Mother's Day after being shot repeatedly on Saturday.

Sheriff's Captain Loyd Baker said the father and son were arguing, and John Hanly got in a vehicle to drive away. The vehicle was then hit with gunfire repeatedly, with at least one bullet striking the victim in the head.

Hank Hanly is being held without bond. His son died Sunday morning.
