US teen accused of stabbing brother in squabble

Two teenage brothers were home alone in their suburban neighborhood when an argument over loud music spiraled out of control, police said, leaving one brother dead from a knife to the chest and the other accused of killing him.
William Gorzynski, 15, was in juvenile custody on a second-degree murder charge in the Monday afternoon death of 14-year-old Matthew Gorzynski.
According to police in Coral Springs, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) north of Miami, Matthew was playing music on a home computer. William was watching television nearby and complained the volume was too loud. He told him to turn it down. Matthew refused. The two yelled at each other, then fought.
Then William went to the kitchen, grabbed a 7-inch (18-centimeter) knife and stabbed his brother in the upper left chest, Sgt. Joe McHugh said.
William called an ambulance soon after and told the dispatcher he had just stabbed his brother.
"It's actually a confession on tape," McHugh said. "He's actually describing what occurred. This was definitely not accidental."
The 14-year-old died about an hour later at a nearby hospital.
Prosecutors said no decision has been made on whether the teen will be charged as a juvenile or adult, and no formal charges have been filed yet.
