A 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder in the fatal subway stabbing of a 14-year-old kid in Upper Manhattan over the weekend, according to police and cop sources Sunday.

The young slay suspect is being treated for stab wounds at New York Presbyterian Hospital, sources said.

He is believed to have known his victim, Ethan Reyes of Yonkers, who NYPD officials say died after a street-level fight descended into the 137th Street/City College subway station around 3 p.m. Saturday.
