A Houston resident has been accused of trying to hire somebody to kill his children and detectives are saying that the suspect’s motive was to get out of paying child support. It looks like the suspect Alirio Perez is now in a whole heap of legal trouble, as he has been charged with the solicitation of capital murder and remains in the Harris County Jail without bond.
KPRC Houston reported that 54-year-old Alirio Perez allegedly tried to hire Hector Flores to kill his long-time girlfriend and his children, but instead of killing the family, the man reported the solicitation incident to the police. Hector Flores is reportedly the nephew of the girlfriend.
While the suspect didn't want to pay child support to the mother of his children, detectives say that Alirio Perez offered Hector Flores $10,000 to kill the family. A Houston family law attorney can tell you that there are better ways to reduce the costs of child support payments than having children killed.
FindLaw states that a child support payments can be lowered if both parents agree to the change, and if a judge orders the change. A judge can approve of child support modification if one parent can show a change in their circumstances that necessitates the modification. Life events such as the loss of a job, serious injury, a change in marital status or in household income can be considered circumstances that necessitate child support modification.
