FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The brother of the man who rammed his car into a church wall says he’d been acting strange for the past week and didn’t know the Fort Worth-area pastor he beat to death.

Derrick Anthony Birdow’s brother said Tuesday he has no idea why Birdow drove from his Fort Worth home to Greater Sweethome Missionary Baptist Church in nearby Forest Hill on Monday, passing by numerous churches.

Glen Birdow told The Associated Press that his brother did not attend the church, but that his wife may have a few times.

Derrick Birdow died after being found unresponsive in a patrol car. Officers had subdued him with a Taser after arriving to find him assaulting the Rev. Danny Kirk Sr. with an electric guitar.

Kirk died at the church.
