We always knew high school parties could get crazy, but this time an Oak Forest teenager really crossed the line.

A 16-year-old boy was charged with murder in connection to the stabbing to death of another teen at a party in Oak Forest on Sunday, police told the Chicago Breaking News Center.

The police did not give the name of the been charged suspect, but the teen has also been charged with aggravated battery related to the stabbing of another 17-year-old partygoer who did not die as a result of the stabbing.

Felix Jimenez, 18, of the 15300 block of Laurel Avenue died at 12:16 a.m. Monday at Advocate Christ Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The other stabbing victim was also taken to Advocate Christ for treatment, but his condition was unknown as of Wednesday morning.

Police responded to a report of a stabbed person at about 11:16 p.m. Sunday to a home in the 15300 block of Arroyo Drive in Oak Forest.

Investigators believe there was a fight at the party and the charged teen stabbed Jimenez and the other stabbing victim several times each. Police found the suspect, who fled the scene after the stabbings occurred, a short time later.

The party had at least 15 people in attendance, police said.

A bond hearing is scheduled for the 16-year-old in the Marham branch of Cook County Criminal Court.
