PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say 1 of 4 men who were part-owners of a Vietnamese restaurant has been arrested in the stabbing deaths of 2 brothers who were also part-owners of the business.

Police said two pairs of brothers owned the restaurant and that one brother from each pair argued for several hours about hiring and firing of restaurant staff before the fight began.

Brothers Brandon and Timmy Hoang were fatally stabbed.

The other pair of brothers were questioned by detectives, resulting in the arrest of 51-year-old Tony Phung on suspicion of 2 counts of second-degree murder.

It's not immediately clear whether Phung has an attorney.
