Late Tuesday night Cincinnati Police arrested a 16-year-old boy and charged him with murdering his 17-year-old brother in their Hyde Park home.
Police were initially called to the Hyde Park Square just before 1pm, on a report that was both strange and frightening. "Somebody reported that [a teenager] was seen washing blood off himself in the fountain," Lt. Kurt Byrd says. The first police reports said the teenager said someone had been beaten to death with a baseball bat.
Police say the teen took them to his home, five blocks away on Berry Avenue. There they found the boy's older brother, Johnny Warrington, dead. Warrington was a student at Summit-Country Day High School and was just days away from graduation.
His younger brother is charged with murder as a juvenile. Fox 19 News has a policy of not reporting the name of juvenile suspects. The boy will go before a judge to determine if he should be charged as an adult.
