Hide from ya kids might be more like it… A 13-year-old girl and her 15-year-old boyfriend hatched an elaborate plan to kill her parents so they could be together that nearly succeeded after the girl’s mother had her throat slit.
According to Marion sheriff’s spokesman Judge Cochran the incident occurred at about 5 a.m. Sunday at a home on Northwest 55th Place in Ocala.
An arrest affidavit states that at first the 15-year-old juvenile boy told detectives that he was walking by the house, heard the commotion and went to investigate. He later laid out the entire plot from beginning to end, according to Marion County Sheriff’s office reports.
In a taped interview with detectives, the boy said that he and his 13-year-old girlfriend began planning their attack last week by phone and on Facebook and they’d decided that the best course of action would be to ambush her mother in the garage.
He told detectives that his girlfriend had him remove his shoes after he arrived at the home Sunday morning because they made noise. After helping him find a knife in the kitchen she had him hide in the garage. Once the girl’s mother had been lured there he told her they wanted to be together and that he would take care of her daughter. He then reprimanded her for hitting him with a stick on a previous occasion. The report states that he then slashed the woman across the neck with the knife before going inside to confront her husband.
Once inside he held the knife to the girl’s father’s throat, threatening to kill him but instead he was convinced to bring the injured woman to the hospital, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
Cochran says the man was not injured in the attack.
The report says that as the teen drove his girlfriend’s mother to the hospital he made her promise she’d allow him to be with her daughter and that she wouldn’t sue him because of the incident.
According to Ocala Star Banner reports the boyfriend ended up saving the woman’s life by leaving her at the emergency room at Munroe Regional Medical Center where officials called the Sheriff’s Office before having her transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center where she underwent life-saving surgery. Ironically the mother works at the same facility as a physical therapist.
Hours later both teens were arrested on two counts each conspiracy to commit murder and one count each of attempted murder in the second degree. They were being held without bond at the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center. While initial reports withheld all names involved because the accused are juveniles, the young Bonnie and Clyde were later identified as 15-year-old Pedro H. Solis and 13-year-old Yaquelin Galvez Don.
