Connecticut man charged in death of brother

June 11, 2019

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man is facing a manslaughter charge in connection with the death of his brother nearly two years ago.

South Windsor police on Tuesday arrested 29-year-old Daniel Epstein and charged him with first-degree manslaughter upon his release from Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown.

He was being held on $1 million bail pending an appearance Tuesday in Superior Court in Manchester.

Police started investigating in August 2017 when a nurse who went to the brothers’ South Windsor home to administer daily medication found conditions in the home that made her suspicious. She called police, who found 31-year-old Marc Epstein dead in a bedroom.

Daniel Epstein’s case was not listed in online court records and it was unclear if he has a lawyer.
