Dale Wakefield had fled to Maryland

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - A man accused of brutally stabbing a homeless man, then fleeing the state is on his way back to Pennsylvania to face charges.

George Mohr was attacked outside the Doylestown train station last week, and died of his injuries over the weekend..

A tip from his sister put police on the trail of 21-year-old suspect Dale Wakefield.

Wakefield told his sister that he stabbed someone "and may have killed him," and that he planned to flee to South Dakota, according to court papers.

Wakefield got only as far as Maryland, where he was arrested.

He was extradited to Bucks County Thursday afternoon for an arraignment. He's charged with first degree murder.
