A man arrested and charged with the murder of his brother is now in a Brazos County jail cell.

Kyle Wischnewsky was arrested in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Saturday. Brazos County Sheriff's Investigators pinged his cell phone and police there found the stolen Ford F 250 in a hotel parking lot.

Wischnewsky was taken into custody by a SWAT Team after trying to run.

According to Brazos County Justice Web, Wischnewsky was booked into the Brazos County just after 1 a.m.

He is being charged murder and being held on a $1 million bond. He's also being held on a $10,000 bond for a credit card abuse warrant out of Polk County.

Sheriff's officials also tell News 3 that Wischnewsky also has a parole violation.

Brazos County Sheriff's investigators say 27-year-old Kyle Wischnewsky orchestrated a plan to lure his brother to Highway 21 near Kurten, where he then allegedly shot him twice in the head.

It's an unthinkable crime that left 42-year-old Clifford Wischnewsky of Tomball dead, reportedly robbed and gunned down by his younger brother over $14,000 and a pickup truck.

Signs of tragedy littered Highway 21 East near Kurten Friday morning after a truck driver noticed a body lying on a cattle guard with his face covered.

Clifford Wischnewsky was shot two times in the head. Investigators say he and his brother were traveling in his Ford F 250 to purchase two ATVs.

"When they arrived up here they were towing a trailer to carry those back and Clifford was also carrying enough money to pay $7,000 a piece for each of those all-terrain vehicles," said Sheriff Chris Kirk of Brazos County.

Sheriff Kirk says now it was all a ruse.
