JASPER, Ga. -- Authorities in north Georgia say a 16-year-old boy is expected to make his first court appearance Monday after he was accused of killing his stepfather with a sword.

Pickens County sheriff's Lt. Kris Stancil says a relative of the teen called 911 Friday night to report the stabbing.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( http://bit.ly/RbN5tD ) reports that it happened at a home inside a gated community in the Jasper area. Jasper is about 60 miles north of Atlanta.

Deputies say they found 36-year-old Christopher Allen inside the home. Stancil said he was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, where he died during emergency surgery.

Pickens County Sheriff Donnie Craig says investigators believe the teen stabbed his stepfather with a Samurai-style sword following an argument.
