ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Deputies say a Haitian immigrant has been beaten to death by his brother in Anderson County after the men argued over money.

Authorities told media outlets that 36-year-old Jean Francois Mareus is charged with murder.

The coroner’s office says 42-year-old Anel Mareus appears to have been beaten in the head with a pipe or stick.

Deputies say the brothers came to Anderson from Haiti around September, and a language barrier made the case harder to investigate.

Authorities say the men lived together, and they are still trying to determine why they were arguing over money before the Thursday argument.
