A Texas man is accused of stabbing his 7-year-old brother to death in a senseless murder near Fort Worth over the weekend.

Isidro Brito Bruno, 20, was arrested on a capital murder charge, though his motive is still unknown. He was found near the crime scene with a self-inflicted stab wound to his upper body and was treated before his arrest, police said.

The brutal killing happened Saturday night in a home in Haltom City.

Officers were called to the scene around 9:45 p.m. and found the victim, Jacob Gabriel Brito, bleeding from multiple stab wounds, authorities said in a news release.

The boy was taken to a children’s medical center, but he died shortly after his arrival, according to the release.

Brito Bruno was being held on $250,000 bond Sunday at the Tarrant County jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
