NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Two brothers have been charged with killing a man outside a Nashville high school in a crime that police say appears to be motivated by a lingering dispute over a girl.

Metro police say they have charged Jamontae and Ke'Vonte Davis with criminal homicide. The brothers were standout high school basketball players at Nashville's Hillsboro High and formerly played for Columbia State Community College.

Police say they were arrested in Columbia Tuesday. Columbia State Community College officials say 18-year-old Ke'Vonte Davis is still enrolled in school, but his 21-year-old brother Jamontae no longer attends.

The brothers are accused of killing 23-year-old James G. Nevils on Friday outside Nashville's Whites Creek High during half-time at a basketball game.

Online court documents do not list a lawyer for either of them.
