A preliminary hearing has been set for 45-year-old Rodney Chisholm for August 25th.

The Manvel man is charged with murdering his brother.

Authorities say Chisholm admitted to killing 59-year-old Donald Chisholm after they had a fight.

He said he killed Donald by striking him in the head with a metal pipe and strangling him.

This is not Rodney's first run-in with the law. He was arrested for theft of property when authorities found stolen farm equipment on his property.

Authorities say he posted bond on those charges, then stole another brother's vehicle. Authorities found him in Nebraska.
