DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A teen has admitted to stabbing her mother's boyfriend to death. 

Police said Berenice Juarez, 16, pretended to be her mother Tuesday night, and sent a text message to Gilardo Paz asking him to meet her at a Delray Beach shopping center Wednesday morning.  

The teen then stabbed him in the chest at least twice, ditched the knife, and then headed to Atlantic High School in time for class, police said.

Paz's daughter said, through a family friend, she didn't even know her father was in a relationship. "She says is wouldn't be anything serious, because she doesn't even know about anything and then she heard about her because of what happened today [Wednesday]."

Juarez has been arrested and could be charged with first degree murder.
