A deadly fight between two brothers over internet devices ended with 20-year-old Tim Record, of Leominster, Massachusetts stabbing his older brother, 23-year-old brother, Nathan, to death, police said.
Tim Record pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to the murder of his brother Nathan. Their mother called police Tuesday evening after her sons’ argument over digital devices that overtaxed the home’s internet bandwidth turned bloody.
According to information witnesses gave to the police, the brothers were arguing over the use of digital devices which overwhelmed their internet bandwidth and that led to a fight. They claim Nathan allegedly punched Tim in the head, and retreated to his bedroom. Tim got upset, stormed into the kitchen took some knives, went to his brother’s room and stabbed him in the chest.
Nathan was rushed to the UMass Health Alliance Hospital, where he died. Tim was arrested, handcuffed and taken away as soon as the police arrived. He is being held without bail.
Blake Rubin, Tim Record’s attorney said: “I would say that the family is in mourning at this point, that’s probably the best way to describe their situaton. Very sad, very tragic.”
