PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police arrested a man on suspicion of murder after his brother was stabbed to death late Sunday night.

Roosevelt Mitchell Jr., 49, was arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of 47-year-old Kelvin Mitchell about 10:30 p.m.

A Phoenix police spokesman said the brothers were involved in a fight in the backyard of a home near 15th Avenue and Baseline Road before Kelvin Mitchell was stabbed at least once.

He was taken to a Phoenix hospital, where he died, the spokesman said.

Officers recovered a weapon believed to have been used in the stabbing.

Police are continuing their investigation, the spokesman said.

No other information was immediately available.
