The brother of the northern state man accused of killing his influential social media friend over the weekend apologized for the alleged murder of his brother.
"I am deeply sorry that something like this comes from my family and my heart goes to the victim's family," James Ward wrote in a post posted on Instagram on Monday.
Ward's 21-year-old brother, Brandon Andrew Clark, allegedly sliced the throat of his 17-year-old girlfriend Bianca Devins in Utica and posted a horrible photo of her lifeless body on Instagram early Sunday.
When the police invaded, Clark would have slit his throat and posted a picture of his bloody neck on Instagram, the authorities said.
The violence occurred when the couple – who have been in a relationship for about two months – returned to the state after having a fight at a concert in Queens on Saturday night, police said.
Ward identifies as a member of the US Air Force on his Instagram account. He tried to distance himself from his brother's alleged actions, which he described as "disgusting".
"There's nothing better than waking up at 4 am to discover that your brother has killed someone and tried to commit suicide, and when you try to understand how the person you admire and taught you so much is responsible for such a horrible act. act, and people will go out and blame you for what he did, "read part of the post.
"So, I'm in Alaska for military service and I want nothing more than to wake up and go home hoping it's an unhealthy nightmare, but I'm going across the country."
Clark Monday night was charged with second degree murder. If he is found guilty, he faces up to 25 years in prison.
