Teen Accused Of Stabbing Brother In Squabble

Florida police say an argument over loud music led a 15-year-old boy to fatally stab his brother.

The teen is being held in juvenile custody on suspicion of second-degree murder in his 14-year-old brother's death.

Coral Springs Police say the teen being held asked his brother to turn down the music playing on a computer. When he refused, police say the 15-year-old got a knife from the kitchen and stabbed his brother in the chest.

An attorney for the boy tells the South Florida Sun-Sentinel his client doesn't even believe it happened. The lawyer says the boys fought, "but they don't fight in an unusual way."

The teen called 911 soon after and told the dispatcher he had just stabbed his brother. Police say it's "actually a confession on tape."

    Anonymous,you are a typical liberal.Blame everything or everybody else for someones actions.When I was growing up most siblings squabbled but they did not murder.Most of the people I hung out with did not go to church and now they have families and some grand children and are outstanding citizens.I dont know any that have done anything like this.I dont think church would do anything for a kid this age.They have listen to that rap _ _ _ _ to long that it has ruined thier logical chain of thaught.If you dont believe it listen to some of the lyrics.The military used it for so called torture to make the enemy talk.Heck I'd talk to to keep from listening to that too.If your the same Anonymous that I think you are you always preach to LOVE THY BROTHER NOT MURDER HIM and then blame someone else.

    Anonymous, you are anonymous for a reason. If I thought like you, I would want to be anonymous too. As for being latch key kids, at 14 and 15 years old, no one should have to be at home when they get there. You DON'T know if one or both parents work. In this economic time, work is a part of life. Being divorced has nothing to do with what happened. I'm not touching the church attendance. IF YOU go- fine but don't push your religious beliefs on someone else.You keep betting.

    I bet both parents work, or the one because they are divorced. They do poorly in school. They are not active in extra-curricular activities at school or with the community and they are latch key kids. I also BET YOU THEY DO NOT ATTEND CHURCH with their family.

    ...Kind of like your spelling. It's unacceptable. Either the kid has mental problems, or he's trying to play the system. Regardless, I feel horrible for the parents. It must be hard having to go through something like this.

    what's wrong with this kid? wouldn't it be easier to turn the music down himself? this is absolutly unexeptable.
