(Lancaster) -- The mother of one of two young men charged in the stabbing deaths of two disabled men in their Lancaster home says he's a good boy.

Nineteen-year-old Juan Cristo-Munoz Jr. and an 18-year-old are facing charges of criminal homicide, conspiracy, burglary and robbery.

Lancaster police allege they broke into the home early Sunday, demanded money and then stabbed 61-year-old Leroy Kinsey, who had a physical disability, and 62-year-old Richard Walton, who used a wheelchair.

Authorities say a large sword was used on one of the victims.

Police say the teenagers were found in the basement with blood on their clothing.

Cristo-Munoz's mother says her son is a good boy and adds she's "stressed and sad" and keeps crying.
