GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A Glendale teenager and two of his friends have been indicted in the stabbing death of the teen's father.

According to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, Meer Nasrullah, 16, Mustafa Hasan, 17, and Ameer Sabih, 20, have been indicted on multiple counts in connection with the murder of Assos Nasrullah.

On Aug. 3, Glendale police officers responding to a welfare check at a home near 51st and Orangewood avenues discovered the body of the 45-year-old victim, who had been stabbed more than 100 times.

An investigation led detectives to the victim's eldest son and two of his friends.

Meer and Sabih allegedly confessed to the murder and to stealing various items from the home, including the victim's car, in order to make it appear to be the scene of a burglary gone wrong.

The defendants were indicted on multiple counts, including first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, burglary, theft, hindering prosecution, tampering with physical evidence, and unlawful use of transportation.

All three defendants remain in custody.
