Two teens have been charged with murder in the deaths of a Louisiana oil-company manager and his son, authorities revealed Sunday, according to the Daily Mail.

Neither Haraqyon Degruy, 18, nor her friend Dexter Allen, 17, have any “significant” criminal history, officials say, and authorities are still trying to figure out the motive for the slayings, as well as the connection between the teens and their alleged victims.

David Pence, 56, was shot three times in the chest while he was sitting in an armchair; his son, Nicholas Pence, 25, was shot in the face and the back, according to the site.

According to the Daily Mail, the shootings could have been the result of an armed burglary gone wrong, since the two teens were allegedly linked to recent car break-ins.

David Pence’s wife found the two men, who had been celebrating a football game win in their garage on Wednesday, when the shooting occurred and she said she heard the gunfire. The Mail reports that they had said goodbye to stragglers at the party when they were attacked.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand called the shooting a “completely, totally, shock-the-conscience type of homicide—obviously execution-style, very close.”
