SLIDELL, La. (AP) - A Florida teenager, temporarily residing in the Slidell area, has been booked with the murder of his brother.
St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain says 18-year-old Stuart Tomlinson on Wednesday was booked into the parish jail with one count of second-degree murder.
Tomlinson was living with the victim, his brother, 23-year-old Bryan Tomlinson.
Strain says Stuart Tomlinson was attempting to help his brother get clean from a drug addiction. According to Tomlinson's statements, the sheriff says Tomlinson admitted firing several rounds into his brother after Bryan discovered text messages between his wife and Stuart discussing contacting police to get Bryan help and went into a rage.
Stuart Tomlinson was arrested without incident. Bond has not been set.
