Man Fatally Stabs Brother, Wounds Mother

A 27-year-old man stabbed his mother and his brother in their Queens home Wednesday evening, killing the brother, according to law enforcement sources.

The suspect, identified by police as Tony Glover, stabbed his 46-year-old mother several times in the torso in their Jamaica home on 176th Street, then stabbed his 25-year-old brother, Victor Johnson, also in the torso, according to the sources. 

Glover was found with stab wounds to the leg, though it's not clear how he sustained those.

The victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where Johnson was pronounced dead. The mother is in stable condition. 

Officers took Glover into custody at the scene and also took him to Jamaica Hospital, where he's in stable condition.  

He is facing charges of murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. Attorney information wasn't immediately clear.
