Haltom City news, Texas news.

On Sunday, a Texas man was arrested on a capital murder charge after authorities said he stabbed his 7-year-old brother in a suburb of Fort Worth.

On Saturday, officers responded to a call coming from a home in Haltom City around 9:45 p.m. where they found Jacob Gabriel Brito bleeding from multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police found his brother, 20-year-old Isidro Brito Bruno, who was outside the house. According to the statement from Police Chief Cody Phillips, the guy had a stab wound that appeared to be self-inflicted in his upper body. He was arrested and conducted to a hospital.

On Sunday morning, Brito Bruno was jailed in the Tarrant County jail on a $250,000 bond. He still has no attorney to speak on his behalf, and police said they are still investigating the stabbing and didn't gather any incentive behind it.
