A knife fight between two Guatemalan brothers left one dead and one hospitalized in critical condition

Associated Press:

Tomas Ramirez, 22, was killed in the brawl at a South Jamaica apartment.

His 20-year-old brother was being treated for stab wounds to his back and neck.

Police had trouble identifying the brothers, who immigrated to the United States from Guatemala.

The surviving brother speaks an indigenous Guatemalan dialect and confused detectives by calling his dead brother by more than one name.

Police said he was arrested, and charges were pending.
