Ex-boyfriend headed to court in fatal stabbing of high school girl
Abraham Lopez, 18, is accused of killing senior classmate and ex-girlfriend Cindi Santana, 17, Friday during the South Gate school's lunch period.
He also is charged with bringing weapons to school and with assault for the alleged stabbing of another student, a dean and a school police officer who rushed to Cindi's aid. Their wounds were not life-threatening.
Lopez was arrested Sept. 25 for allegedly threatening Santana and her family. He was jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail but released two days later after prosecutors declined to file charges.
