A U.S. student studying abroad has been arrested for attempted murder for allegedly stabbing his friend 25 times after a drug-fueled night out in Rome on Halloween.

At an apartment around the corner from Rome's famous Coliseum, 20-year-old Reid Alexander Schepis, a first-year student at John Cabot University, a private U.S. liberal arts college, allegedly stabbed his longtime friend Fabio Malpeso.

Schepis and 19-year-old Malpeso, friends from New Jersey, were partying late Halloween at a Rome night club. Schepis told authorities he'd used drugs for the first time that night, mixing ecstasy and alcohol.
