TUCSON, Ariz. -- Two teenagers are in jail, charged with attempted murder.

Monday night shortly after 5:00, sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic dispute call involving a father and son near North Swan Road and Skyline.

They found the home-owner suffering from a knife wound, and after investigating, deputies arrested 14-year-old Andrew Lynds and his girlfriend, Angela Swink, for breaking into the house and trying to stab Andrew's father to death.

Investigators say they found evidence the two teenagers planned to also kill Andrew's mother.

"Through evidence found at the scene and through further investigation they determine that the intent of this kids was to kill the father and then go to another location where they knew the mother was and kill her as well," said Deputy Dawn Barkman from the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Both teens were booked for conspiracy to commit murder, aggravated assault, and first degree burglary.

Under state law, a 14 year old can be charged as an adult.
