When Gutierrez arrived she reportedly asked to use the bathroom - but then grabbed a knife from the kitchen and allegedly used it to repeatedly stab Baez.
After fleeing the scene, Gutierrez was arrested when attending Baez's funeral several days later.

Since the attack, the pair's high school has been hosting lectures aimed at preventing similar tragedies. reports Cafe Negro.
Police are expected to charge Guiterrez with murder later this week.
