A man accused of murder confessed to investigators Wednesday morning.

Investigators said Shannon Brewer admitted to stabbing Mark Dishon during an argument Monday night at Dishon's Lauderdale County home.

Brewer was allegedly friends with Dishon.

Dishon and Sandra Sikes were taken to the hospital. Dishon died from his injuries.

Brewer and his brother, Jerry Brewer, were apprehended by U.S. Marshals in Tallahassee, Florida.

Shannon was charged with murder. Jerry faces a theft charge. More charges are pending for both brothers.
