Police today expected to seek a charge of being an accessory after the fact against a 17-year-old El Centro girl arrested in connection with the stabbing death Sunday of a 19-year-old El Centro man.
El Centro police Lt. Paul Longoria declined to give details about what led to the girl's arrest or why she was being considered an accessory after the fact. He said he could not release such details because the girl is a minor.
Meanwhile, Longoria said this morning police have yet to make an arrest of a suspected assailant. He said police were continuing to follow leads to narrow down suspects.
The stabbing occurred before 6:30 a.m. Sunday in the 200 block of East Olive Avenue.
Killed was Edward De La Cruz, who police think was involved in a confrontation with at least one individual outside a friend's residence on Olive.
