Teens accused of plotting to kill parents

OCALA, Fla. —A 13-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy are being held without bond after being accused of trying to kill the girl's parents so they could be together.

Deputies said the the girl lured her mother, Luz Galvez, into her Ocala garage on Northwest 55th Place, and then the 15-year-old slit her throat early Sunday.

A Marion County judge ordered the pair remain in secure detention. Their next court appearance will be March 18 at 9 a.m.

According to the arrest affidavit, before slitting her throat Solis told Galvez she should let her daughter be with him and that Galvez should not have hit him with a stick the last time she saw him.

Galvez said she complied with everything Solis was asking of her because she thought he would let her die if she hadn't, the arrest affidavit said.

Investigators said they also put a knife to the father's throat, but he convinced Solis to take his wife to the hospital.

Authorities said Solis took Galvez to the hospital after she told him he could be with her daughter and that she would not sue him.

"Part of what the young man offered in the conversation with the victim is they should be together and to let the 13-year-old and 15-year-old have a romance. But the mom didn't think they should be involved, and quite frankly they retaliated," said Marion County Sheriff's Office spokesman Judge Cochran.

Galvez underwent emergency surgery and is recovering.

The teens had plotted through Facebook messages to kill the girl's parents for more than a week, investigators said.

Both are charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and attempted second-degree murder.
