MORENO VALLEY (CBS) — The arraignment for the man suspected of murdering 17-year-old Norma Lopez was postponed Thursday.
Jesse Torres will now be arraigned on Nov. 16 for murder charges with a special circumstance allegation that the crime occurred during a kidnapping.
Torres was charged Wednesday after being released from custody and rearrested earlier this week.
If convicted, Torres could face the death penalty.
Torres lived within a block of Valley View High School in Moreno Valley at the time of Lopez’s murder.
She was taken while walking to a friend’s house after a summer school class in July of 2010.
