A 13-year-old girl and her 15-year-old boyfriend are in jail, accused of plotting to kill the girl’s parents. Pedro Solis is accused of slashing his girlfriend’s mother’s throat March 9 inside the family’s garage. Investigators say the couple hatched the plot because the girl’s parents were trying to keep them apart. The teens are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and second-degree murder. Police say the 13-year-old suspect tried to escape on the way from jail to the Ocala, Florida courthouse Tuesday.

Solis is being charged as an adult. The judge has not decided whether to try the girl as an adult. That’s why we’re not identifying her. Police say the girl woke her mom out of bed and lured her into the garage by telling her she heard noises. When mom went to investigate, the boyfriend confronted her, demanding she stop trying to keep the young lovers apart. Police say Solis then slip the mom’s throat, using a knife his girlfriend had gotten from the kitchen.
