    Gonzalo Julio Morales, age 35, from San Jose arrested on Sept. 28, 2015 after the stabbing man of a man at a quinceanera.

    Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies have arrested a 35-year-old San Jose man who they say fatally stabbed another man during a quinceañera celebration in unincorporated Morgan Hill over the weekend.

    Sgt. James Jensen said that deputies took Gonzalo Julio Morales into custody on Monday after he was found in a Mountain View home. His bloody jeans were found in a garbage can at the home, Jensen said. Detectives also found the knife thrown from a car that they said Morales used to allegedly kill Jacobo Rojos-Vilchis, 34, of Milpitas at a young girl's 15th birthday party on Saturday about 11:15 p.m. in the 600 block of San Bruno Avenue near Morgan Hill.

    Rojos-Vilchis died at the scene.

    Authorities did not provide a motive for the stabbing.
