Brother Arrested In Naval Officer's Murder

San Diego police have arrested the brother of Ensign Jonathan Jake Tenorio, 25, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, on charges of first degree murder.

The Associated Press reports 21-year-old Zachary Tenorio remains in jail without bail.

The elder Tenorio's body was found in his Mission Valley apartment on Sunday. He had been stabbed to death, according to the A.P. Ensign Tenorio had been an officer on a missile cruiser, and was recently married.

The Daily Mail reports Zachary Tenorio is a resident of Guam who was in San Diego for a jujitsu tournament.
