Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT -- A 50-year-old Isabella County man is in custody, accused of trying to kill his own son.

State police were called to North East County Line Road today for a report of a 27-year-old man covered in blood.

Once on scene, troopers determined the victim's father struck him over the head with claw hammer after a heated argument.

The father is in the Isabella County Jail facing five felony charges, including assault with intent to murder.

He's expected to be arraigned Monday.

The victim is recovering at Saint Mary's Hospital in Saginaw.

Investigators believe alcohol was a factor.
