LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 16-year-old who prosecutors are charging as an adult is due to face a Las Vegas judge in the shooting death of his 18-year-old brother.

The teen is scheduled for an initial appearance Friday in Las Vegas Justice Court on a felony murder charge that could get him life in prison if he's convicted of killing Clayton Wesley Bronson on May 22 at their home in southwest Las Vegas.

He's not eligible for the death penalty due to his age.

The Associated Press isn't naming the teen until he faces the judge as an adult.

Police say their mother told police she heard a gunshot and found Clayton Bronson wounded in the stomach, then saw the younger son fire a fatal shot into the 18-year-old's head.
