MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee teenager was charged with homicide Tuesday, after he allegedly stabbed his step-father nine times last weekend.

18-year-old Luis Pacheco is still waiting to make his initial court appearance in the death of Carlos Diaz-Ruiz at the victim’s home early last Saturday morning.

According to prosecutors, Pacheco told his mother he needed a place to stay – and when he arrived at her house, he went up to an upstairs bedroom and later told his mother he had to leave.

When she went upstairs, authorities said she saw Diaz dead with a bloody knife close by. She said Diaz and Pacheco had argued many times in the past.

Pacheco was arrested later last Saturday. Police said he cut the victim’s throat during a brief struggle.
