Man accused of killing his younger brother

Posted: Updated:

What first looked like an auto fatality has instead been ruled as murder. And as such, one man is behind bars accused of killing his brother.   

A man accused of killing his brother late last month is being held on $100,000 cash bail. 47-year-old Mariano Moses was arrested and charged with murder over the weekend. The victim? His younger brother, Mikson.

According to court documents, it was in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 26 when police received a call for a disturbance at a Yseng-Song home. According to the neighbor, Mariano was seen pushing, punching, and kicking at Mikson and another individual named Stephen Stephen.

Mikson was later seen lying on the ground and picked up by Mariano and put in a truck before they drove off in a black Ford pickup to another Dededo location.

Fifteen minutes later, a two-vehicle hit and run was reported along Kaela Mart in Dededo. The suspect car was described as a black ford pickup with damages to the front left side.

Nearly an hour later, police responded to another Dededo incident - this time an injured person. Court documents state that medics conducted CPR on an unconscious and unresponsive male later identified as Mikson Moses who was pronounced dead at the Guam Memorial Hospital.

Although Mariano was the driver of the Ford pickup, he told police he did not know if he got into a crash or how his brother got hurt but admitted Mikson was in the car with him.

Police observed the pickup had damages consistent with the vehicle that left the scene in the earlier hit and run.

Through an investigation conducted by the Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division, it was deemed that Mikson didn't die as a result of a traffic accident. An autopsy conducted by chief medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola confirmed this. According to Dr. Espinola, Mikson died from blunt force trauma, either kicking or punching, to his stomach. He ruled the cause of death a homicide.

Mariano's next court hearing is scheduled for May 12.
