Police in Naka City, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Monday said they have arrested a 65-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 67-year-old brother.

According to police, Mamoru Odakura, a company employee, is accused of beating his brother about the head and legs with a rod at around 6 p.m. on Saturday, Kyodo News reported. Odakura, who lives elsewhere, was visiting his brother’s home at the time and told police he and his brother got into an argument and he lost his temper.

Police said the victim was declared dead at the scene and added that an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

Ah, another family moment! People here need to find constructive ways of dealing with their tempers instead of beating a family member to death.

I can't imagine such a terrible thing. My brother and I don’t always agree but we’re as thick as thieves.

Cain and Abel. Though usually people get this out of their system well before their 60s.

On the streets of Tokyo you can see "suspected" such walking around with demons, and multiple demons on them. Be watchful in public these days.
