According to a press release, an investigation shows Faith got into a verbal fight with his neighbor, 59-year-old Rickie Jones, last night.

The victim’s wife reported she last saw her husband go back outside to confront Jones before she went to bed for the night, Kentucky State Police said. She then found him dead the next morning.
