NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The son-in-law of country music star Alan Jackson and Nashville prosecutor has died in a fall in Florida.

Citing a Davidson County District’s Attorney’s Office release, news outlets report 28-year-old Ben Selecman died Wednesday. He was at a boat dock in Jupiter, Florida, when he slipped, suffering traumatic head injuries.

District Attorney Glenn Funk called the assistant district attorney a “rising star.”
