Homeless Man Charged In Homeless Murder

Police arrested a 45-year-old homeless man on July 13th, who they say stabbed another homeless man to death on July 10th.

Cops charged Antono Cabrera with the stabbing death of Velibor Flores, 43, whose body police discovered outside a Duane Reade Pharmacy at 60-02 Roosevelt Avenue at about 12:30 a.m. on July 10th.

Investigators are trying to determine what led to the deadly stabbing. It is unclear if the two men knew each other prior to the stabbing, an NYPD spokesperson said.

Flores was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he was declared dead on arrival.

Cabrera was charged with second-degree murder and weapons possession at his arraignment at Queens Criminal Court, where he was held without bail.
