The man suspected in the stabbing of a teenager is expected to appear before a judge today in Houston

A man who allegedly confessed to fatally stabbing a 14-year-old boy in southwest Houston is expected to appear before a judge this morning.

Christopher Bert Taylor, 52, was arrested Wednesday without incident after investigators received a Crime Stoppers tip, according to police.

Joseph Aguirre-Flores was stabbed multiple times outside a check cashing place at about 11pm and staggered toward Beechnut Street and collapsed.

Witnesses told police they heard a scream and saw the boy running.

Surveillance cameras captured him as he struggled to survive. Police say Taylor is the sole suspect in his murder. Taylor has a lengthy rap sheet, including a DWI and five convictions for drug possession and four theft cases.
