Police say 50-year-old Kelly McCoy was stabbed to death in a Clay City home on First Avenue Saturday night.
Hours later, 67-year-old Terrance Wagner was arrested and charged with McCoy's murder.
Investigators say McCoy was fatally stabbed in the stomach following what police simply call an argument.
McCoy's family describes him as a person who gave without ever asking for anything in return.
"Even when he was a child he would do anything for anyone. He'd give the shoes off his feet. The shirt off his back. He'd come home from school with no jacket on," says Linda Townsend, the victim's sister.
McCoy's body has been taken to Frankfort for an autopsy. Funeral arrangements are pending.
This was the second murder in Powell County in less than 12 hours.
