SELMA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man has been accused of shooting and killing his older brother in a dispute over a woman.

The Selma Times-Journal reports 50-year-old Edward Sanders was charged over the weekend and arraigned Monday in the death of his brother.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson says Sanders shot 57-year-old L.C. Sanders on Saturday because of an argument over Edward Sanders’ girlfriend.

The Selma Police Department says L.C. Sanders was found lying on the kitchen floor with a knife and gun wound when officers arrived.

A preliminary hearing is set for August. It’s unclear whether Edward Sanders has an attorney.
