(KUSA) Colorado authorities have charged a 13-year-old boy with murder in the death of his father.

The body of 50-year-old Joseph Kelly Jr. was discovered at his Gypsum home he shared with his son Monday morning. The Eagle County coroner says that Kelly had been dead for at least six days and his body was decomposing.

Kelly's 13-year-old son, who was at the home when deputies arrived to perform a wellness check, was arrested Monday in connection with his murder. The teen answered the door and told deputies that his father was dead in the home.

Eagle County Sheriff's investigators became suspicious after Kelly failed to show up to a meeting with deputies last Thursday to discuss his son's possible involvement in a graffiti incident.
