FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 30-year-old man who was invited to live on a family’s property in northeast Florida has been charged with the “brutal” premeditated first-degree murders of their two young sons.
The boys' mother found their bodies on Wednesday. Mark Wilson Jr. was arrested late Thursday night.
State Attorney R.J. Larizza said during a Friday morning news conference that Wilson “attacked those two kids without mercy.”
Sheriff H.D. “Gator" DeLoach says investigators found the murder weapons — a knife and hammer.
The boys were 12 and 14 years old. The family had moved to the area 16 days ago.
