STERLING HEIGHTS, MI (AP) -

A 20-year-old man has been charged with murder and arson in connection with a fire that killed his 17-year-old brother in the family's home in Sterling Heights.

The Detroit News reports that Mark Marroki was arraigned Monday.

The early Friday morning blaze trapped Matthew Marroki-Yaldo in an upstairs bedroom. Other family members made it safely from the burning home.

Assistant Macomb County Prosecutor William Cataldo said the fire was started after a dispute.

The judge granted defense attorney Andrew Kassab's request for a competency examination for Mark Marroki.
