Taipei, July 24 (CNA) A 17-year-old boy was arrested on homicide charges Friday after allegedly killing his younger brother accidentally by punching him too hard in the abdomen in a fight over a smartphone, police in Taoyuan said Friday.
The suspect allegedly chased and punched his 16-year-old brother several times in the abdomen two days ago after discovering that his brother had taken his smartphone and refused to give it back to him, the police said.
The 16-year-old complained to his parents of a stomach ache later that day, but they thought he was merely hungry.
He complained again on Thursday before passing out at home and being rushed to the hospital, the police said. [FULL STORY]
