EL PASO, Texas -

A man allegedly beats his half-brother unconscious earlier this month, but was arrested just a couple of days ago for murder.

El Paso Police confirm Orland Yazzie, 29, hit his half brother with his hands and feet back on Aug. 9th at 2140 Zaragosa. Officers said they were arguing about work and family issues. 

An autopsy showed Yazzie caused his half-brother "complications from blunt force trauma to the head."

The half brother 33-year-old Fernando Scott died ten days later. And now police are charging Yazzie with murder. He's being held on a $250,000 bond.

This is the 11th murder this year, compared to eight at this same time last year.
