Half-brothers take fight over winning lotto ticket to court


Half-brothers from a town near Harrisburg have taken their fight over a $1 million lottery ticket to court.

Ira Sharp claims he gave his brother, Charles Meehan, money to buy the ticket. Sharp said after they discovered they had won, Meehan tried to hide the ticket and keep the money to himself.

Sharp is asking for half of the $1 million prize.

The jury trial began earlier this week and is expected to wrap up Wednesday.
