Man, 52, charged in Houston fatal stabbing of boy, 14


HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police have charged a 52-year-old man in the fatal stabbing of a 14-year-old boy in a strip mall parking lot.

Christopher Bert Taylor of Houston was being held Thursday on a murder charge, with bond set at $50,000. Online court records do not list an attorney for Taylor, who was arrested Wednesday. A hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Authorities say Joseph Aguirre-Flores was attacked late Monday night in southwest Houston and managed to run to a street, where he died.

Police have not released a possible motive or said whether the teen and the man knew each other.

Witnesses reported seeing two men fleeing the scene. Investigators didn't immediately provide information on any other suspects.
