Onslow County Sheriff's Office Says Man Killed Brother With Knife

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says a Jacksonville man is now in jail after murdering his brother with a knife.

48-year-old Bobby Joyner is charged with the murder of his younger brother, 41-year-old Keith Joyner.

Deputies responded to a call at a home on Rocky Run Rd. early Saturday. That's where deputies say they found Keith Joyner injured after he was stabbed in the abdomen and had a laceration in the chest area under the arm. He was transported to the hospital where he died around 7:15 a.m. Saturday.

Bobby Joyner is being held in the Onslow County Jail without bond. He is scheduled for a first appearance in Onslow County District Court Monday, December 5, 2011.

Deputies say both men lived at the home on Rocky Run Rd.

No word yet on why Bobby Joyner stabbed his brother.

    We just spoke Friday evening...KS you surly will be truly missed by many. Especially your saltwata family. You were always keeping folks laughing. We all had a great time when you came to Winston in October. At heritage in November we all had a ball. Now, God angels took you into his kingdom, where there is no worries, no pain and eveything is love. My prayers go out to your children, there mothers and your father. As for Bobby, all you can do is pray forgiveness,because NOTHING couldnt have been that bad for you to do this. Im still in Shocked.

    This is so tragic I knew them both personally and I am shocked and saddened. I am sure Bobby must feel terrible.Whatever happened Alcohol was definatley involved as friends of mine were out with them earliernot that alcohol is an excuse, these brothers were close you did not see one without the other, they just got back from spending Thanksgiving with family. You just never know what goes on in families but I am sure this was one tragic horrible alcohol fueled fight that ended up with one dead and another essentially gone. My condolences go out to the family and I am sure Bobby is probably in shock and disbelief at what he has done.

    Let us not judge unless we know all the truth. I know both men personally and can say, they were, at one point a very loving brother team. Something happened, which we do not know or have answers for. That does not give us the right to judge anyone. Please just pray for the family because they have actually lost 2 family members at the same time. Keith, may you rest in peace and Bobby, may you one day regret your actions.Love to the whole Joyner family and know you are in our prayers.
