A sibling squabble escalates to bloodshed in Brenham. Authorities say an argument over a cell phone ended with the brother dead on the floor of the family home and the sister charged with his murder.

Cassandra Newsome, 23, was arrested at the Gay Hill home around 4 a.m. Tuesday. Police say she stabbed her brother Earvin, 22, with a knife, fatally puncturing his lung. Witnesses say the argument over the cell phone led to a confrontation over family honor. Casandra Newsome remains in the Washington County jail awaiting a bond hearing.
