PICO RIVERA, Calif. (AP) - The ex-boyfriend of a 16-year-old girl who died in front of her mother last week has been charged as an adult with murder in her stabbing death.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says Rory Murga was charged Wednesday in his ex-girlfriend’s death.

Elena Moore was stabbed multiple times in her chest and back in her Pico Rivera home early Friday. She died in front of her mother after authorities say she repeatedly screamed Rory’s name.

The sheriff’s department says the pair dated for a year before Elena broke up with Rory. Two weeks later she was killed.

Rory is set to be arraigned Thursday. Prosecutors are asking for a $2 million bail.

He faces life in prison if convicted. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
