A 47-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with a death investigation Wednesday afternoon.
John Charles Hill, 47, is accused of stabbing Lawrence John Hill, 61, to death.
The two are brothers who shared a home in the 400 block of Dare Road, the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post.
John Charles Hill is being held in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail on a second-degree murder charge. His mugshot was not yet available through the jail inmate tracking system at 9:30 a.m. Thursday — he was booked Wednesday night.
Deputies responded at the home just before 3 p.m. Wednesday after dispatchers received a call reporting a dead man inside.
Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shelley Ward said a family member walked into the house and found Lawrence John Hill. Authorities said John Charles Hill was immediately detained for questioning.
