HIGH POINT, N.C. -- High Point police said a 14-year-old girl has been charged with murder after allegedly stabbing and killing her 16-year-old brother.

Police said the stabbing happened around 12:47 a.m. at 302-D Brentwood St. and apparently stemmed from an argument between the siblings.

The victim was identified as Ti’kere Martin. Police said he was pronounced dead after being taken to High Point Regional Hospital by emergency workers.

Police said suspect is currently charged with first degree murder, a charge filed within the juvenile court system. First degree murder is defined as being premeditated.

The case is still under investigation and a decision on whether it will remain in juvenile court will be made by the district attorney’s office, police said.

Neighbor Jasmine Dunbar said what happened at her apartment feels like a dream. Dunbar said the siblings had been at odds for three days.

“She had said many times that she was eventually was going to hurt someone, but I didn’t think her brother,” she said, referring to the suspect.

Dunbar said Martin was a sophomore at Southwest Guilford High School and a great friend.
