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.

    @ Andre, omg, i just made the comparison to The Lovely Bones and you’re right. I LOVE that book and it makes me cry every single time i read it. Wow, crazy! Except Norma was 17 and Susie was 14. My condolences to the family as well. Her life was just beggining. But you’re in a better place now beautiful angel ❤

    IF this guy did it, I hope he pays for what he did for the rest of his life. Doesn't he have kids? imagine if it was YOUR daughter your sc*m bag. I feel bad for both of the families involved.
