GAINES COUNTY - We're learning more in the case of a Seminole man allegedly murdered by his nephew.

According to a preliminary autopsy report, 51-year-old Abram Klassen sustained severe head trauma and broken ribs.

26-year-old Juan Klassen and 24-year-old David Redecop were arrested for killing the man.

Gaines County Sheriff's officials say it all started at a Super Bowl party.

According to investigators, the two suspects were giving the victim a ride home, when one of them accused the victim of touching his girlfriend.

That's when officials say the two men began beating Klassen.

Their bond has been set at $500,000 each.
The investigation is now in the hands of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
They hope to have the results in about four weeks.
