KUALA LUMPUR: An argument between two brothers over what to watch on TV took a fatal turn after the younger sibling was stabbed and killed early Saturday (Oct 6) morning.

It is learnt that the 48-year-old victim was watching TV at home in a Taman Seri Murni flat in Selayang when he began to argue with his older brother.

"We have since arrested the victim's 56-year-old brother, who also sustained injuries to his head and palms.

The suspect was sent to Selayang Hospital for treatment, SAC Rusdi added.

"He will be remanded on Sunday," he said.
