PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A prosecutor in Pensacola, Florida, says he anticipates a 15-year-old boy will be charged as an adult for fatally stabbing his older brother with a butcher knife.
Assistant State Attorney Greg Marcille said Thursday he anticipated the teen will be charged with second-degree murder.
Authorities say the boy stabbed his 19-year-old brother in the neck with a butcher knife Wednesday afternoon after they got into an argument.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that the older brother was transported to a local hospital where he died of his wound.
