LEOMINSTER, Mass. — A Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to fatally stabbing his older brother during an argument.

Twenty-year-old Timothy Record, of Leominster (LEH’-mihn-stur), was ordered held without bail at his arraignment Wednesday on a murder charge in the killing of 23-year-old Nathan Record.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says police responded to the family home Tuesday night in response to a 911 call from their mother.

The older brother was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died.

Leominster interim Police Chief Michael Goldman tells The Sentinel & Enterprise there was a history of violence between the brothers.

Authorities did not say what sparked their dispute.

Timothy Record’s attorney says his client is upset about the brother’s death.
