MONTREAL - A 12-year-old Montreal-area boy accused of killing his brother has been charged with armed robbery in a separate incident.

He appeared in youth court today for a date-setting in the case involving the death of his 16-year-old sibling.

The teenager was shot to death on Jan. 21 at the family home in Dorval, a suburb in western Montreal.

His brother has since been in custody, although he was allowed to attend his sibling's funeral last week.

The accused also faces a charge of illegal possession of a loaded, prohibited weapon related to his brother's death.

He returns to court Feb. 27.
