BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) - A man is being held at the Campbell County Detention Center, accused of murdering his brother.

Anthony Sturgeon, 53, is now facing murder charges for his brother's death. Police say both lived at the home, and Anthony Sturgeon was the one who called 911.

The case remains under investigation.

Bond for Anthony Sturgeon was set at $500,000 during an arraignment on Monday morning. He was appointed a public defender and had a preliminary hearing set for July 11.
