HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

New details on the investigation into the death of a man at a Henderson saloon.

38-year-old Robert Brantley, of Sebree, has been arrested and charged with the murder of 34-year-old Adam Hogan, of Uniontown.

Brantley was working security Saturday night at Double Dukes when an altercation with Hogan took place.

According to the citation that led to Brantley's arrest, an autopsy on Hogan indicated several injuries in his neck area that were consistent with strangulation.

In addition, statements from witnesses indicated that Brantley "choked" Hogan for a long period of time during the altercation.

The citation also states that Brantley told first responders that he "put the subject to sleep" during the alteration.

One video of the incident shows Brantley restraining Hogan by the neck or head region for over a minute-and-a-half, according to the citation.

Brantley was interviewed and arrested on murder charges Monday night.

He was released from jail on Tuesday afternoon on a $50,000 cash bond.

Brantley is scheduled to appear in court on March 11.
