A 25-year-old Central Florida man gunned down his older brother during an argument about a cheeseburger Thursday night, police said.
Benjamin Middendorf and his mother dialed 911 at 10:05 p.m. saying he shot his brother Nicholas with a .9-mm gun at their St. Cloud home, according to an affidavit released by the St. Cloud Police Department.
“My son shot my son!” their mother screamed on the 911 call. “I hope you go to jail!”
The brothers argued about a cheeseburger after Nicholas Middendorf, 28, and his mother returned to the 6th St. house from drinking at a bar, according to an arrest report cited by the Orlando Sentinel. Benjamin Middendorf, 25, faces charges of premeditated murder. The affidavit obtained Friday by the Daily News notes the mother said her two sons were clashing over responsibilities, and Benjamin Middendorf said his older brother was bullying him.
Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold (Matthew 24:12). Take away the boundaries and murder will increase in the land. When those who hate the natural order that God created more deaths will ensue. Notice the mother is not a Christian. She has a dependency upon alcohol rather than God. Learn from this and run to Jesus so that times of refreshing may be near.
