An 18-year-old student who allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend at a South Gate high school was charged Monday with murder and other felony counts in connection with the fatal attack.

Abraham Lopez was charged with 10 criminal counts, including fatally stabbing 17-year-old Cindi Santana on Friday at South East High School, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. She was stabbed multiple times.

Officials said that Lopez, who lives in South Gate, is a senior at the school.

The lunchtime attack left a school dean and another student, who had tried to intervene, injured, officials said. Santana was slain after an argument with Lopez, the district attorney’s office said.

Lopez is charged with 10 criminal counts that include false imprisonment by violence, assault with a deadly weapon and bringing a weapon on campus. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at the Downey courthouse, officials said.

Lopez faces a maximum sentence of life in prison with possibility of parole. He was being held in lieu of $1.2-million bail.
