A Marion County teenager is being held on a million dollars bond, charged with murdering his 11-year-old brother. 

Sheriff's deputies arrested 15-year-old Zachary Stringer just hours before his brother's funeral June 17. 

The victim was found dead from a gunshot wound in his home June 11. 

Authorities initially thought it was a suicide because a shotgun was found near the body. 

Zachary Stringer is in the Marion County Jail awaiting his initial court appearance.
