SWEETWATER, Fla. (AP) -- July 15, 2012

Police in South Florida say they've arrested a man who stabbed his brother more than 65 times with a knife.

Sweetwater police say 23-year-old Brandin Anderson Gonsalves of West Palm Beach has been charged with first degree murder.

Gonsalves is suspected of stabbing his older brother, Gerard Gonsalves, to death on July 10. He's also accused of stealing his brother's car.

A Sweetwater police officer saw Brandin Gonsalves standing suspiciously in the city's business district on Thursday. The officer asked what he was doing there, since most of the businesses nearby were closed. Authorities say the suspect responded that he did not know.

Police say Brandin Gonsalves then told the officer he had killed his brother and that he was the one police were searching for.
