A teenager accused of killing a retired U.S. Army sergeant last April — stabbing him more than 40 times in the torso, face, neck, head, arms and genitals — could face trial as an adult for the gruesome slaying, authorities said.

The boy, 16, remains unidentified because he's a juvenile. He was charged with murder after San Antonio police found him by following a blood trail from the second-story apartment of George Izer, 59, to a nearby residence, authorities said.

A hearing is set for July 1 to determine if the teen should be tried as an adult.
