AVELLA, Pa. --

A Washington County, Pa., man is accused of fatally shooting his older brother who was visiting from Brooke County.

The Washington County coroner says 47-year-old Richard Bauduin, of Colliers, W.Va., died of a shotgun wound to the head.

The shooting happened in Avella at the home of his father, 75-year-old Richard Bauduin Sr., and the suspect, his brother 46-year-old Robert Bauduin.

According to The Associated Press, the men's father told police he was cooking a meal in the kitchen around 7 p.m. Saturday when he heard his sons arguing before the gunshot.

Family members say the brothers often argued and that Richard -- the alleged victim -- often mediated disputes between his father and the brother accused of shooting him.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Robert Bauduin, who faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on a charge of criminal homicide.
