A teen stabbed and killed Friday in Santa Fe has been identified as 17-year-old Aiko Perez.

Santa Fe police, which initially identified the victim as Lako Perez, 18, found Aiko Perez's body inside a home in the 1000 block of Calle Don Roberto near Las Acequias Park.

Officers arrested Matthias Hutt, 18, and charged him with first-degree murder in connection with Perez's death after he told investigators he stabbed his friend while they were "tripping on acid," Santa Fe police Lt. Jose Gonzales said.

Correction: This story has been amended to reflect the following correction: An earlier version misidentified the victim of a fatal stabbing as Lako Perez, 18, due to incorrect information provided by police. The victim is Aiko Perez, 17.
