Brother of beaten Maui man turns himself in

By Associated Press

(Wailuku-AP) -- The brother of a Maui man beaten dead yesterday has turned himself into police.

California resident James Smythe was released and not charged with any crime in connection with his brother, Seward Smythe Junior's, death.

Maui police say an autopsy yesterday found no life-threatening injuries to explain the death.

The brothers were in a legal dispute over who owned a rural Haiku home Seward Smythe lived in. The dispute apparently came to blows in the Haiku house's carport and police say Seward Smythe died either during the fight or shortly after it.

A final autopsy report isn't expected for a couple of weeks. Police say it's up to the Maui County prosecutor whether any charges are filed against the victim's brother.
