GLASGOW — A suspect was arrested just before midnight and charged in relation to the Fountain Run death Kentucky State Police had been investigating Tuesday.

Roger G. Mansfield, 53, had been found dead by the Fountain Run Police Department, which had been called to do a welfare check at his residence and contacted KSP shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday after making the discovery, according to a KSP press release.
