Yavapai County man accused of shooting, killing younger brother

WILHOIT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of his younger brother in the small Yavapai County town of Wilhoit.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office says 68-year-old Warren Lewis is being held without bond in the Camp Verde Detention Center on suspicion of first-degree murder.

They say Lewis called the Sheriff's Office and reported shooting his 58-year-old brother.

Deputies found Gregory Lewis lying on the ground outside a Wilhoit home with an apparent upper body gunshot wound. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Warren Lewis told deputies he and his brother argued over rent and other issues before the shooting.

He called 911 and a handgun believed used in the shooting was recovered by authorities after a search warrant was served at the home.
