WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The suspect in the death of a 25-year-old Steckline Communications employee and former K-State student 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. (Wichita media identified that suspect as Antwon Banks the day after the arrest.)

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.
