The 17-year-old boy who confessed to police that he and his teenage brother strangled a gay teacher after he allegedly “got sexual” with him has been indicted on murder charges.

Clark county officials indicted Juan Enrique Aguirre and 18-year-old brother Jose Antonio Delatorre of the December 20 murder of 32-year-old Matthew Cox, Aguirre's gay choir teacher.

Cox was found dead inside his Henderson, Nevada home on December 22 by a friend who had gone to check on his pets while Cox was away visiting family in Hopkins, Michigan for Christmas. His dead body lay motionless with a blanket over his head on a couch.

Detectives say Aguirre told them that he and his brother strangled his music teacher because he made him uncomfortable with sexual advances the night he died.

On the night of his death, Cox picked up his student Aguirre and brother at Basic High School and took them back to his house. There they played video games.

Aguirre told investigators that Cox “started to get sexual with him” while the pair were alone upstairs. He said the advances made him uncomfortable.

The brothers allegedly killed the music teacher in his car, when he drove them home, strangling him for abut ten minutes. Afterwards, they drove back to Cox's home and left his body on the couch. The pair also stole valuable electronics from Cox's home, including a Wii video game system, an iPod music player and a laptop computer.

Aguirre told police that he kissed his teacher on the cheek before leaving, saying he did not mean to hurt him, just rob him.

“Never in a million year would my son have done anything with this kid,” Debra Armstrong, Cox's mother, told ABC 13. “He just wanted to help, help straighten kids out. God will come through for Matthew.”

An arraignment on charges of murder, kidnapping, conspiracy, burglary and auto theft for Delatorre and Aguirre is scheduled for February 18. The pair face life in prison if convicted.
