NEW YORK -- Police in New York City have made an eighth arrest in the fatal stabbing of a Bronx teenager, who was brutally attacked in what may have been a case of mistaken identity. Elvin Garcia was arrested in the Bronx and is expected to be arraigned later Tuesday on charges of murder, manslaughter and assault in the death of 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Denise Clark announced Tuesday.

Six suspects taken into custody in Paterson, New Jersey, after the attack outside a Bronx bodega appeared in court Tuesday, where they waived their rights to an extradition hearing. Jose Muniz, Santiago Rodriguez, Joniki Martinez, Manuel Rivera, Jose Tavarez, and Danel Fernandez agreed to be transported to New York to face charges of homicide, manslaughter and assault in the fatal stabbing.
