Around 10:00 p.m., deputies said they responded to 6611 CR 148 regarding a stabbing where they found the two stabbing victims. 

The 16-year-old suspect was allegedly banging on the door when the teen victim went to unlock it before being stabbed, deputies said. When the adult victim came to inspect what was going on, they were also stabbed by the suspect. 

The teen has since died and the adult remains in the hospital for treatment, deputies said.

During their investigation, deputies learned the teen suspect ran away. Deputies later found him and took him into custody.

When interviewed by deputies, the teen said he ordered the weapons last Thursday, and they arrived on Saturday. He then told deputies he walked six miles to the Wildwood home to stab the victims, deputies said. 

The teen suspect is facing charges of first-degree premeditated murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, and armed burglary.
