Parking space dispute turns deadly; brothers accused in fatal beating of lawn worker

Two brothers are facing a murder charge for the death of a man in a dispute over a parking space, Fort Lauderdale police said.

Alfred West, 56, and David Eugene West, 64, are accused of killing Henry Lee Brown, 48, of Fort Lauderdale, following an argument that began about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday outside a home in the 2300 block of Northwest 14th Street, investigators said.

Brown had parked his vehicle in front of the Wests’ house to mow some lawns in the neighborhood but the Wests had told him on several occasions not to park there, officials said.

As the argument escalated the Wests grabbed baseball bats and Brown armed himself with a machete, police said.
