Suspect in Fatal School Stabbing to be in Court

A pair of women react after a stabbing during a fight involving multiple students inside Spring High School Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, morning in Spring, Texas. A 16-year-old boy was airlifted from the high school in suburban Houston with stab wounds suffered in the altercation.

A 17-year-old charged in the fatal stabbing of a fellow student at a Houston-area high school is set to be back in court Friday.

Luis Alonzo Alfaro was to appear before a state district judge in a Houston courtroom on Friday. He made an initial court appearance a day earlier.

Alfaro has been charged with murder in Wednesday morning's killing of 17-year-old Joshua Devon Broussard. He's jailed on a $150,000 bond.

Alfaro has told investigators the altercation began when he bumped a different youth in the school cafeteria.

But Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators say gang rivalry appears to be the motive in the slaying at Spring High School in Spring, a Houston suburb about 20 miles north of Houston.

Classes have been canceled at the school until Monday.
