Joshua Lelay died in his brother's arms.
Though it's probably a fairly safe bet that his brother didn't whisper any parting words of comfort. After all, it was Joshua Lelay's brother who is suspected of killing him.
Harris County Sheriff's deputies rushed out to the 18100 block of Calcaterra, about 20 minutes northwest of Jersey Village, on Tuesday afternoon after getting a call about a possible stabbing. When they arrived, they found that 24-year-old Joshua Lelay had been knifed to death by his older brother, Daniel, authorities say.
Investigators claim that Daniel Lelay, 26, has a history of mental illness and that he killed his brother after hearing voices. He was booked into the Harris County jail with a $50,000 bond on the charge of murder.
