LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Both suspects in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Fabian Rios are now in custody.

Noel Serrano, 18, turned himself in to Lubbock police early Wednesday morning. Mayra J. Caraveo, 21, was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Hobbs, New Mexico on Tuesday afternoon.

Police were called to a home at 89th and Avenue U around 12:40 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30. Officers found Rios stabbed in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rios' body was found outside the home, but witness reports say that he was killed by Noel Serrano in the living room and dragged outside afterward.

The police report says Serrano shot and stabbed Rios because he was flirting with Caraveo. It says Rios was in a recliner in the living room and that Serrano shot him and came back with a knife to stab him multiple times, saying, "You shouldn't have tested me."

When officers first entered the home, they say it was apparent that there had been some kind of struggle. Broken glass littered the living room, furniture had been turned over, and a TV had been smashed on the floor.

The report says a 13-year-old girl was inside the home and witnessed the entire incident. Caraveo and Serrano took the minor from the home when they fled to New Mexico. They later dropped the minor off at a family member's home in Hobbs. That's when the police were contacted.

The girl said she felt like Serrano would hurt or kill her if she didn't go with him.

Both suspects are charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping.
