Murder your brother over an argument about loud music? Yeesh.

According to the attorney for Jason Halman (the brother) he did stab and kill Greg, and they're going with an insanity defense. The attorney said Jason had been having psychological problems for several months now, and on the Friday before his death, Greg had called their mom to say that Jason's problems were getting worse. Their mother called Jason's doctor who didn't seem to think there was any immediate threat. Jason came home around 5 on Monday morning and knocked on the door because he had forgotten his keys. Greg opened the door to let him in and Jason put on loud music to shut out the voices in his head. There was no argument, Jason calmly stabbed Greg one time in the carotid artery, killing him.
