HAMPTON -- A Hampton man faces a murder charge in the death of his older brother in May.

Police say the men got into a fight two days before the victim was found dead in his home on Olga Court in Hampton.

According to police, Gary Lee Mullen, 51, was found unconscious at his home on May 11th. An autopsy determined he died from blunt force trauma to the head and neck.

Investigators learned that Mullen had been in a fight with his brother two days earlier.
