NASHVILLE, TN - A man is currently behind bars after police say he used a sword to nearly decapitate his younger brother.
On Thursday night police received a call from 33-year-old Charles Masters, who told them he had a dead body in his apartment. When police arrived, they found Masters’ brother, 28-year-old Jordan Masters, dead on the living room floor.
And by dead, I mean really, really dead. According to police, Jordan’s body had multiple lacerations and that his head had been partially severed. Investigators believe he was killed last weekend after getting into an altercation with his older brother, and that a sword found in the apartment was the weapon used to kill him.
Some of this info was obtained from Charles himself, who made incriminating statements to police at the scene, including Charles telling them that he had been laying with his brother’s body for the last couple nights hoping that he would wake up and everything would go back to normal.
Charles was arrested and charged with his brother’s murder. He is being held in lieu of $750,000 bond. No reports on what the brothers had been arguing about before Charles turned his brother into a Pez dispenser.Tags: Charles Masters, Crime, Decapitation, sword, Tennessee
