WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The suspect in the death of a 25-year-old Steckline Communications employee has been moved from a hospital and booked into the Sedgwick county jail.
The Wichita Eagle reports a 31-year-old identified in a police report as the suspect in Daniel Flores’ death was booked into jail Friday night on suspicion of first-degree murder and aggravated burglary.
Flores’ body was found around 8 a.m. Monday in a basement area of the Steckline offices. Preliminary autopsy reports indicate he died of blunt-force injuries.
Police arrested the suspect late Wednesday during a traffic stop, when an officer found him with a knife stuck in his stomach. Officers had been watching the suspect’s home before the traffic stop.
Officials said Friday that police plan to present their case to prosecutors next week.
