The New York Times reports that 15-year-old Destiny Garcia has been charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of her mother, Rosie Sanchez, and Sanchez’ boyfriend, Anderson Nunez. The bodies were discovered Sunday night in the Brooklyn apartment the couple shared, although the killings occurred during the final days of 2015.
Ms. Sanchez’ body was found with multiple gunshot wounds, while the corpse of Mr. Nunez had stab and gunshot wounds.
Garcia made a videotaped confession to the crimes and reportedly alleged past physical abuse at the hands of her mother, but Chief of Detectives Robert K. Boyce said authorities do not believe the killings to be an act of self-defense.
Prosecutors say Garcia acted in concert with another individual to commit the murders. A judge ordered her held without bail.
