A teen girl was murdered last month after her ex-boyfriend allegedly strangled her.

As NewsChannel 9 reported, Adrian Garcia, 18, is charged with 15-year-old Alejandra Arango's death.

According to an arrest affidavit released Tuesday, on August 5, Arango's mother left for work early in the morning and when she text her daughter throughout the day the messages went unanswered. That afternoon, she found Arango dead in the bathtub.

El Paso County Sheriff's investigators said her death appeared as if it was staged.

They said Garcia went over to the home to find out why Arango no longer wanted to date him. Garcia said he left Arango crying around 8 a.m. and told her, "Karma would get her."

The medical examiner determined Arango was strangled to death.   

Garcia remains jailed.
