FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say two teenagers are charged with murder in the shooting deaths of a southwest Florida woman and her son.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office says deputies were notified Monday about injuries at a Lehigh Acres home. Deputies say they found a trail of blood leading to the bodies of Amy Ann Lorah and her 16-year-old son William Haley.

According to the sheriff's office, 16-year-old Justin Wirth and 17-year-old Clayton Combs went to the home Sunday intending to rob Lorah's son. Authorities say Wirth shot and killed Lorah and her son. Both teens allegedly then stole a safe containing $370 and a gun.

Both teens were arrested Saturday on charges of first-degree murder and home invasion robbery with a firearm. Both will be transferred to the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.
