A HEARTBROKEN mom woke up to find her two teenage sons killed with a knife and a hammer.

Mark Wilson, Jr. was arrested for the killing of Robert Baker, 12, and Tayten Baker, 14, at a mobile home in Melrose, Florida on Tuesday.

Investigators said that Wilson is well-known to the Baker family, but the sheriff said his motive was unclear, FirstCoastNews reported.

The children's mother said she was sleeping with a younger child when the incident happened. She said she woke up to find her teenage sons unresponsive and called 911 immediately, CrimeOnline reported.

The children's father, a truck driver, was not at home at the time, the outlet said.

Their parents are cooperating with investigators and are not being looked into, deputies told FirstCoastNews.

During a news conference on Friday morning, State Attorney R.J. Larizza said: "This case is an example of how two horrific murders can be solved in a matter of 48 hours by working together."

Putnam County Sheriff Gator Deloach slammed Wilson in a Facebook post earlier that morning.

He wrote: "Mark Wilson, the sick monster responsible for Tayten and Robert’s brutal murder was arrested last night.

"Very quickly detectives honed in on Wilson and immediately established this individual was only a threat to those around him.

"Unfortunately, Robert and Tayten were the ones who suffered whatever was going through Wilson’s twisted agenda.

"As a parent, the murders of Robert and Tayten are an unimaginable loss to a family. I can’t begin to understand the anguish their parents are suffering."

Wilson Jr has been booked and is being held on no bond.
