The boy’s identity is still being withheld due to his age. According to the investigators, he had initially been considered a witness. The witness said to the police that he saw someone dressed in all black leaving the scene but investigators didn’t find any signs of forced entry, and the boy became a suspect.
Houston police said that they had a suspect of the murder case that was detained as early as Saturday but they did not announce charges until Monday.
The boy was charged with charges of murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He was transferred into the custody of Harris County Juvenile Probation authorities by the Police.
