Brooks Murder Sentencing

By David Kenney

Two Jackson brothers are headed to prison, after admitting they murdered their father. 

Monday morning Nicholas and Rufus Brooks Jr. both entered guilty pleas in the murder of their father Rufus Brooks Sr.. The Brooks brothers pled guilty to charges of manslaughter and conspiracy to commit murder.

Nicholas Brooks was sentenced to 25 years. His brother Rufus Jr. was sentenced to 25 years.

 Rufus Brooks Sr. was found shot and stabbed in his north Jackson home on Easter Sunday last year. Brooks was a minister at Greater Bethelehem Temple Apostolic church in Jackson.

Rufus and Nicholas Brooks apologized to their families during their sentencing, and say it was the fact their father was re-marrying, that led them to murder.
