A Mounds View man is charged with fatally stabbing his younger brother after the two were drinking and arguing.
The Ramsey County Attorney's office charged 56-year-old Jay Hilling with second-degree murder Thursday.
According to the complaint, Hilling called 911 Tuesday night to report his brother had been stabbed. When officers arrived they found 51-year-old Michael Hilling lying on the floor with a kitchen knife in his hand and a blood-soaked towel on his chest.
The stabbing happened at the home of the brothers' mother. Carole Hilling told police she was in her bedroom and only heard her sons arguing.
Jay Hilling was scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday. Prosecutors are seeking bail of $500,000.
