A charging document has shed more light on an attempted murder case involving teenage brothers in northern Minnesota. 

According to a juvenile petition filed in St. Louis County, a 16-year-old Ely boy has been charged with second-degree murder, accused of stabbing his 13-year-old brother and then dragging him near a lake where he left him to die. 

The boy, however, was found near Miners Lake around 3:30 p.m. last Thursday, Oct. 8, by a hiker who called 911. The 13-year-old suffered at least 13 stab wounds, according to police, including wounds to his neck and chest. 

As of Tuesday, the boy was still hospitalized at Essentia Health St. Mary's in Duluth, where he was in stable condition, according to Ely Police Department.
