South Windsor Man Accused of Causing Brother's Death Facing Manslaughter Charge

South Windsor police have arrested a man who is accused of causing his brother's death in 2017.

Officers said 29-year-old Daniel Epstein is facing manslaughter charges after police said he caused the death of his brother, 31-year-old Marc Epstein.

The charges stem from a death investigation at a home that the brothers shared on Palmer Drive in August 2017, officers said.

According to police, a visiting nurse reported that she had gone to the home to administer daily medication to two residents. When she arrived, she found suspicious conditions and asked officers to come check on the residents.

Police found the body of one resident, later identified as Marc Epstein, in a bedroom, authorities said. The other resident, Daniel Epstein, was located shortly after at a relative's home on Brian Road.

Daniel Epstein was transported to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation at the time and remained confined to hospitals until his release on Tuesday, police said.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Daniel Epstein for causing his brother's death, according to officers.

The medical examiner ruled that Marc Epstein died of blunt impact injuries to his neck and head. A cause of death could not be determined.

On Tuesday, investigators went to Connecticut Valley Hospital where they served the warrant and arrested Daniel Epstein.

He is facing a manslaughter charge and was held on a $1,000,000 bond. He is in court on Tuesday.
