Drunk

Further, the accused was said to have complained that his younger brother has been favoured by the mother and even gifted with a new phone yet he was the eldest and deserved some respect.

The prosecution states that the mother brushed him off that he was already grown up, a statement that irritated him in front of other siblings.
