CANTON, Ga. -- A 52-year-old Cherokee County man was found dead in his yard Friday morning.
Barron Clarence Smith's wife found his body at the couple's White Road home.
Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jay Baker said investigators believe Smith was trimming limbs from a tree when he fell from a 20-foot ladder and hit his head.
Investigators do not expect foul play in Smith's death. Baker said an autopsy will determine his exact cause of death.
