MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The 16-year-old accused of stabbing his little brother to death was identified late Tuesday night.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, his name is Shae Holloway and he was moved from a juvenile detention facility to the Lower Buckeye Jail.

It's not clear when the move happened, but according to Deputy Joaquin Enriquez, the teen was transferred shortly after the Maricopa County Attorney made the decision to charge him as an adult.

It was expected Holloway would be charged as an adult but it was up to MCAO to make that call.

The teen is accused of stabbing his 3-year-old brother to death at the family's home in Youngtown Saturday night in a crime Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio described as "vicious" and "horrific."

Holloway and his 17-year-old brother were watching the 3-year-old, as well as their 9-year-old sister and a 4-year-old sibling. The 9-year-old was injured in the incident. She was treated at the hospital and released.

The kids' mother, a nurse, was working that night.

"She did not find out that anything had happened until she returned and tried to go home and that’s when she found out," Bob Culp, her father and the children's grandfather, said.

Investigators are still working to determine exactly what happened that night. Arpaio said his office is holding back on releasing information until they can talk to the other kids and get a clear picture of how things unfolded.

"The suspect was covered in blood and there (were) also traces of blood on the roadways," Arpaio said in a news conference Monday afternoon.

Arpaio said his deputies have been called to the home before and the children's grandfather said there no warning signs.

"This is just such a shock that this would happen," he said. "Nobody, nobody, could see this coming. Nobody. It’s an absolute shock."
