WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — Officials in Maryland say a 14-year-old girl accused of plotting with her 13-year-old boyfriend to kill a relative as part of a “kill list” before killing themselves has been charged as an adult.

The Carroll County Times reports multiple charges were filed against Alaina Jade Blake, including attempted first- and second-degree murder. The 13-year-old’s name was withheld because he is charged as a juvenile.

Court documents show Blake and her boyfriend attacked his 56-year-old relative with a hammer and knife. Carroll County Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Brady says the victim is in stable condition.

Brady says the teens also planned to kill Blake’s grandparents and “possibly others.” She says teens had a “murder-suicide plot” in which Blake would ask her boyfriend to kill her once their list was complete.
