A Massachusetts teenager was indicted Tuesday for the murder and decapitation of one of his classmates.

"This indictment alleges a gruesome act of violence by the defendant and is the first step in a long process to secure justice for Mr. Paulino and his loved ones," District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said.

Paulino's body was found decapitated on the bank of the Merrimack River on Dec. 1, 2016.

According to court documents, Borges, who was 15 at the time, admitted to the murder and the decapitation in a police interview.

Police had said Borges was the last person to see Paulino alive, allegedly telling police the pair had gone down to the Merrimack River to smoke marijuana on Nov. 18.

If convicted, Borges could face life in prison, but would be eligible for parole after 20 to 30 years due to state statutes.

Borges will be arraigned in Salem Superior Court on March 31.
