(Lancaster) -- Authorities have charged a pair of suspects in the stabbing deaths of two men in their Lancaster home.

Police officers found the bodies of 61-year-old Leroy Kinsey and 62-year-old Richard Walton after responding to a 1:00 a.m. Sunday burglary call.

The suspects allegedly got into the home through a first-floor window, demanded money and then repeatedly stabbed the victims before fleeing to the basement, where they were found with blood on their clothing and items belonging to the victims.

Another resident, described as a caretaker, had escaped and called 911 after hearing suspicious noises.

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

Court documents don't list defense attorneys and listed numbers for them couldn't be found Monday.
