    FORT WORTH, Texas -- A fight between two brothers over a piece of chicken ended when the older sibling fatally stabbed the other in the chest and temple, police said.

    Marcus Williams, 21, was arrested and charged with murder on Friday in the death of his 17-year-old brother, Michael.

    The teenager had returned home with some chicken when his older sibling took a piece without asking, police said.

    After the two fought, Marcus Williams allegedly retrieved a knife from the kitchen and stabbed his brother.

    The victim died a short time later at a nearby hospital.

    Three other family members were at home when the attack occurred, police said.

    Such issues are becoming more and more common place. To the point that they are being deemed "just how they are." But sick, indeed.
    Although, this may be just how the media presented the case, it's a shame regardless. If they wanted to make it look as ignorant as they could, I believe they succeeded. Thoughts are beings with limitless power... if we grant it.

    We all know it wasn't over a piece of chicken, it was a respect issue. At the new high school in my home town, a student got killed over a penny. Brothers pitching pennies, the winner hit a double, and the loser only had the one penny. So the brother who won said, That's alright, don't worry about it. So the guy that lost responded that he wasn't gonna give it to him anyway.

    no it wasn't a RESPECT ISSUE,it was a NUTS ISSUE let's call a spade a spade and stop all this sugar coating,if a man kills his brother over something as trivial as a peice of chicken then that man is either on drugs or crazy as h#ll or both,it ain't got nothin to do with respect!

    Just thinking 'bout my own two half brothers. One moved out of state because he was sick and tired of his brothers crap. They have real intense, scary arguements. At family gatherings, we always pray one won't show up!
