Groom charged with murdering his brother on eve of wedding

A GROOM is expected to miss his own wedding, after ending up behind bars charged with the stabbing murder of his brother.

It’s believed the pair got into a heated argument involving a minor family feud, when things quickly escalated to violence on Wednesday night.

Police say, the 57-year-old from Buderim stabbed his older brother in the chest multiple times.


Officers were called to the residence on Hamilton Street at 9.50pm, following reports that there was a disturbance at the property.

They found a 61-year-old man with apparent stab wounds to his torso.

He was rushed to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a critical condition but died hours later.

The younger brother was arrested at the Buderim home and charged with one count of murder.

He is due to appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court.
