Man Killed Brother During Dispute Over Body Wash
Brothers fight, and there's plenty of times things get out of hand, but not often do you hear of one killing the other over something trivial.
Police in Clayton County, Georgia were called to an apartment complex around 2am after a reported stabbing. When they arrived, they found a 28-year-old victim with "several gunshot wounds."
“Detectives worked throughout the day and night interviewing and investigating all possible suspects and leads in this case,” the department said in a Facebook post. “The investigation revealed it was a domestic violence dispute that turned deadly between brothers.”
The investigation found that Jaylan Jones, 23, was accused by his brother of throwing out a bottle of body wash.
Jones admitted fighting with his brother at their apartment, and a witness who was able to break up the fight said it wasn't long after they were pulled apart that they began again.
The second fight led to Jones getting a gun from his room, walking downstairs and shooting his brother multiple times.
Clayton County police said they won't be releasing the name of the 28-year-old victim because it was a “domestic violence related incident.”
Jones has been charged with murder and a felony count of tampering with evidence.
