A 42 year-old Nazareth man was stabbed to death by his older brother on Saturday in what authorities believe was an argument over money that culminated in homicide. Local police responded to reports of a disturbance within a home in the Israeli-Arab city, and arrived to find the man in grave condition. He was transported to the English Hospital within the city, where he later died from his wounds. Police located the chief suspect in the stabbing attack - the victim's 50 year-old brother - at the same hospital being treated for wounds he sustained in the deadly fight. Two of the suspect's sons were also arrested on suspicion of being involved in the crime. Family members told the police that the fight began over an old money dispute between the two men.
