Authorities charged McLellan with aggravated criminal trespassing and felony vandalism, while the charged Higdon with reckless endangerment.

However, Higdon's brother disputes that the two men were in a feud and said he doesn't know why McLellan would do something like that to the home that their father built.

"Don't know why," he told KSDK's sister station WMC-TV in Memphis. "Never had a beef with him. No explanation."
