Man charged in beating death of older brother in Elkins Park

ELKINS PARK, Pa. (AP) -- A man has been charged in the beating death of his older brother in a home just outside of Philadelphia.

Sixty-year-old Jamison Bachman is charged in the death of 64-year-old Harry Bachman, whose body was found a little after noon Saturday in the basement of his Elkins Park home.

Montgomery County prosecutors and Cheltenham police said there were "obvious signs of a violent struggle" and the victim had blunt force trauma to the head and body.

His sport utility vehicle was taken and later found at an Upper Moreland Township hotel, where the suspect was arrested.

Jamison Bachman is charged with first- and third-degree murder, theft and other counts. Court documents don't list a defense attorney and a message left at a number listed for Jamison wasn't immediately returned Sunday.
