Two Florida teens have been arrested in Florida for attempted murder.
Yaquelin Galvez-Don, 13, and her boyfriend, Pedro Solis, 15, were arrested Sunday after attempting to kill Galvez-Don’s mother, Luz Guzman.
Galvez-Don’s parents were reportedly trying to put a stop to their daughter’s relationship with Solis and the teens came up with the conclusion that her parents needed to be dealt with.
According to The New York Daily News, Guzman heard noises coming from her garage early Sunday morning and when she went to investigate, she was confronted by a knife wielding Pedro Solis. The teen pleaded with Guzman to allow him to continue seeing her daughter, then slashed her throat.
With Guzman seemingly dying, Solis rushed into the residence to continue his job and confronted Galvez-Don’s unidentified father. However, Galvez-Don’s father was able to talk Solis down and the teen allowed the man to take his wife to the hospital where she was saved.
According to The Daily Mail, hospital staff called the police after Galvez-Don’s father arrived with her mother and Guzman was able to tell authorities what happened.
Both teens were charged with second-degree attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder. They are being held without bail.
