GREEN FOREST -- Wesley E. Kilbourn, 19, of Green Forest was arrested on a charge of manslaughter over the weekend after he allegedly caused the death of his father, Rodney Kilbourn of Green Forest, authorities said.
Several sources familiar with the situation who asked to remain anonymous told Carroll County News that Wesley and Rodney were arguing on Friday when Wesley allegedly pushed Rodney. Rodney apparently fell backward, hitting his head on a hard surface behind him and breaking his neck. The impact apparently killed the 55-year-old father.
