Teen, 13, Accused of Killing SW Florida Homeless Man

A 13-year-old southwest Florida boy is charged with the second-degree murder of a homeless man, police say.
The teen was arrested at his home on Sunday and was being held without bond.
The News-Press of Fort Myers reports that Thomas J. Bergstrom, 51, was found dead in a homeless camp on Saturday morning. Police say he had been stabbed multiple times.
Detectives identified the teen as a suspect based on evidence found at the scene, Cape Coral Sgt. Dana Coston says.
The Associated Press is not publishing the suspect's name because of his age. No further details were immediately available.

The arrest comes just days after a 12-year-old boy was arrested for shooting a homeless man in the Jacksonville area.
