What to watch on TV – is it a serious problem? Sometimes –yes. A 12-year-old boy stabbed his 13-year-old brother, seriously hurting him, due to different tastes.
The older brother was in extremely critical condition, authorities said.
The two had been fighting when the younger boy allegedly went to the kitchen, returned with a 5-inch (12-centimeter) knife and stabbed his brother in the abdomen, Phoenix Police Lt. Rob Howe said.
Their father heard them fighting over the TV, Phoenix Police Sgt. Joel Tranter said.
The boys' 7-year-old sister was in a different room at the time of the stabbing, Howe said. Police are treating the house as a crime scene, and the younger brother was in police custody, Tranter said.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
