LOS ANGELES, June 27 (UPI) -- Charlie Sheen's character Charlie Harper is to be killed off when the U.S. sitcom "Two and a Half Men" resumes, TMZ reported Monday.

The entertainment news Web site said the Season 9 premiere of "Men" will show Harper's brother Alan, played by Jon Cryer, and Alan's son Jake, played by Angus T. Jones, as they learn of Harper's death.

The script for the season opener is not finished yet and exactly how Harper will die has not been determined, TMZ said.

Sheen was fired this year because of his erratic behavior and substance abuse, as well as disparaging remarks he made about series creator Chuck Lorre. Ashton Kutcher has signed on to join the cast next season.
