NC man charged with killing 15-year-old brother

Asheville, NC - NORTH CAROLINA (AP) - An 18-year-old North Carolina man had been charged with killing his 15-year-old half brother.

Multiple media outlets reported 15-year-old Jonathon Shelton ofAsheville was stabbed to death at his home.

Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan says 18-year-old Tyler Storm called 911 about 3 a.m. Wednesday and said his brother was dead. Duncan says Storm was charged with first-degree murder after he was interviewed by deputies.

The sheriff's office did not release a motive or say if there were signs of a struggle.

The boys' parents were asleep in another room. It was unclear if Strom had an attorney. Counselors were at Reynolds High School on Wednesday and Thursday to help students cope with the death.
