SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - A 70-year-old southeast Missouri man is jailed on $25,000 bond after being accused of pummeling his brother on the head with a hammer.

The (Sikeston) Standard Democrat (https://bit.ly/1J0nubH) reports that prosecutors in Scott County have charged Jerry Savat of Sikeston with second-degree domestic assaultr and armed criminal action.

Sheriff Rick Walter reports that a deputy responding to a reported assault at Savat’s home found Bruce Savat with a head injury and covered with blood.

Walter says Jerry Savat told the deputy he “lost it” during an argument and repeatedly hit his brother on the head with a hammer.

Online court records don’t show whether Savat has an attorney.
