Bryan Dunwoody, 22, 795 Agan Road, Bremen, died early Sunday morning when his brother placed a chokehold on him during a fight, according to Haralson County Sheriff Eddie Mixon.
The brother, Ben Dunwoody, 25, of the same address, is charged with murder, according to Mixon. A friend, Samuel Adam Dean, 23, of 126 Paris Mountain Road faces a battery charge.
The Dunwoody brothers once lived in Rockmart and still have family here, according to local friends of the family.
Mixon said the three joined a group of friends for a night of drinking and ended up at the Dunwoody’s home on Agan Road, off Cashtown Road in Bremen, which turns into Vinson Mountain Road in Rockmart.
A fight broke out between Dean and Bryan Dunwoody, officials said. It was then that Ben Dunwoody used a fatal chokehold on his brother, according to officials.
