Authorities in Utah and Alabama say two teens allegedly killed their mothers and siblings in separate incidents.
On January 17, police in Grantville, Utah say 16-year-old Colin Jeffrey Haynie skipped school and killed his mother and three siblings one by one as each returned home.
Haynie shot his mother and 12-year-old sister multiple times around 1 PM when they walked into the house.
The mother had just picked up her daughter from school.
Authorities say Haynie then shot his 15-year-old sister multiple times after she came home from school then later in the afternoon shot and killed his 14-year-old brother.
At around 6:15 PM, Haynie shot his father as he arrived home but the man was able to overpower his son.
Haynie confessed to the killings.
Five days later in Alabama on January 22, authorities say 16-year-old Landon Durham allegedly killed his mother and twin 13-year-old brothers then went to school.
Durham’s mother and siblings were found dead of stab wounds inside a house in Munford, Alabama.
Authorities say Durham allegedly killed his family sometime Tuesday morning then went to school.
He was arrested Wednesday morning at a local store.
He did not resist arrest.
Durham faces capital murder charges.
Authorities in both states say the killings are unrelated and no motive for the killings has been released.
