CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Police say a 13-year-old southwest Florida boy is charged with the second-degree murder of a homeless man.

The teen was arrested at his home on Sunday and was being held without bond.

The News-Press of Fort Myers reports 51-year-old Thomas J. Bergstrom was found dead in a homeless camp on Saturday morning. Police say he had been stabbed multiple times.

Cape Coral Sgt. Dana Coston says detectives identified the teen as a suspect based on evidence found at the scene.

The Associated Press is not publishing the suspect's name because of his age.

No further details were immediately available.
