OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - An Auburn man accused of biting off part of his brother’s ear has been found guilty of domestic violence.

The Opelika-Auburn News (https://bit.ly/1xwO3UV) reports that 51-year-old Darrell Wimberly was found guilty Friday of second-degree domestic violence after a jury trial. He was arrested after police say he attacked his brother, David, during a dispute in 2013.

Auburn police responded to David Wimberly’s residence on Aug. 13, 2013. David Wimberly reported that earlier that day that his brother had tried to get in his house, but he denied him entry. David Wimberly said Darrell became upset about this and attacked him, punching him and biting his ear before leaving.

Wimberly is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 8.

Second-degree domestic violence, a felony, can result in prison sentences of two to 20 years.
