More brotherly love: Man stabs brother over brownie.

CARBONDALE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a dispute over a chocolate confection led a Pennsylvania man to stab his brother, who responded by throwing a television at him.

Carbondale police say 30-year-old Erik Cain stabbed his brother Wednesday night after getting upset that a brownie had been cut in half.

Gene Cain told police his brother grabbed three steak knives from the kitchen and slashed him, resulting in wounds to his forearm, shoulder and wrist. Police say Gene Cain told officers he retaliated by throwing a television at his brother.

Erik Cain was arrested later. He had been out on bail on charges he’d slashed his girlfriend last month.

Erik Cain faces charges including aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in Wednesday’s incident. It was not clear if he had an attorney.
