Two teenage lovers have confessed to killing her 47-year-old mother and 13-year-old sister. Lucas Markham,14, and girlfriend Kim Edwards, also 14, of Lincolnshire are each serving 17-and-a-half years for the murders. In a new show on British television, Murdered By My Daughter, the teens' confession is being made public for the first time.
According to the Metro, Markham tells the officer interviewing him that he first stabbed Edwards’ mother in the neck and smothered her with a pillow. He then did the same thing to the little sister because he was worried she would call the police.
Kim then went into her mother's room to check on her boyfriend. Kim apparently said she was fine with the murders since she believed her mother favored her sister. "I was okay with it. Just the fact that it happened so quickly that, like, gave me peace of mind cause like, you know, it wasn’t like torture or anything." Other reports share that the mother wanted to break the pair up and that was the cause of the murder.
After the murder, the two apparently had a bath, had sex and watched four Twilight movies. They have been dubbed the "Twilight killers" by the British media. Markham and Edwards are said to be the nation's youngest double murderers.
