A Ventura County teenager could spend the rest of his life behind bars, after being convicted of killing another teen at a party.

Alex Medina stabbed to death Seth Scarminach during the April, 2009 party in Meiners Oaks.  Prosecutors say during a fight, the then 14 year old boy stabbed the 16 year old victim more than two dozen times, and cut his throat.

Media, who is now 18, was tried as an adult.  He’s scheduled to be sentenced next month.
