MILWAUKEE - While one brother sits in jail arrested on homicide charges, friends and family mourn the loss of the other brother.

"He was a great guy," said friend Austin Buchholz.
 
Friends of 20 year-old Jake Langlois are remembering the good times as the shock of his death is fresh.
 
"He is a guy who that would take his shirt off his back for you.  He's pretty much my best friend," said friend David Gable.
 
The Washington County Sheriff's office says they received a 9-1-1 call Tuesday afternoon saying there had been an argument between a 17 year-old and his 20 year-old brother.  The Sheriff's Office says the younger brother stabbed the older brother, Jake, who later died at the hospital.
 
"It's pretty devastating," Gable said.
 
They shared stories of their friend they called "Bubba" who loved soccer, hunting, fishing, and working on cars.
 
"At the Washington County Fair we picked up this S10, like legit picked it up because it was in some girls way," Gable said.
 
"He would always catch a lot more fish than me," said friend Derek Hall.
 
The younger brother is expected to be charged with the murder Thursday.
