Gregory Halman, 24, 'stabbed to death in the Netherlands by his brother after row over loud music' - 22nd Nov 2011

The U.S. baseball player Gregory Halman has been stabbed to death in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The Seattle Mariners outfielder, 24, died in the early hours of this morning, police and the player's family have confirmed.

Halman's brother has been arrested in connection with the incident.

It is believed Halman had been with a female friend in an apartment in the Dutch port city when he went to the apartment below - where his brother Jason lived - to complain about his loud music.

This led to an argument, police said.

The female friend called the police at 5.40am on Monday, and officers found the sports star bleeding from a stab wound.

Police and ambulance paramedics attempted unsuccessfully to resuscitate him.

His brother Jason was later arrested 'in the street' and is being questioned by police, according to a police spokesperson. Read More
