SOUTH FORSYTH — A Cumming man has been charged with murder in connection with the fatal stabbing of his brother early Tuesday in south Forsyth, law enforcement officials said.

Mitchell Brown, 30, reportedly got into a verbal altercation with his older brother about 1 a.m. Tuesday at their parents’ home in the Long Lake subdivision off Peachtree Parkway, according to Epifanio Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

When the fight turned physical, 36-year-old Stuart Brown suffered a fatal stab wound. The brothers’ parents were home at the time, according to Rodriguez.

"Evidence on scene suggested that both alcohol and prescription drugs may have been a factor," Rodriguez said. "However, medical records and the results of the autopsy will determine if they were."

He said Mitchell Brown is being held at the Forsyth County Jail without bond.
