'Sick monster' is arrested for the murder of his girlfriend's nephews, brothers ages 12 and 14, who were found dead in their Florida home by their mother when she woke up

A Florida man was arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend's two young nephews with a hammer and knife inside their own home.  
Putnam County Sheriff Gator DeLoach said Friday that Mark Wilson Jr., 30 - who he called a 'sick monster' - was arrested Thursday night for allegedly killing Robert Baker, 12, and Tayten Baker, 14, in Melrose, Florida. 
The two brothers' bodies were found by their mother, who has not been named, when she woke up on Wednesday morning. 
During a press conference, DeLoach said that Wilson was a long-time family friend of the Baker boys and their aunt's boyfriend. 
Wilson and the boy's aunt - who has not been named - were living in a shed on the Baker family's property, WCJB reported.

Wilson was said to have an extensive criminal and drug history, but did not have a history of violence.  
DeLoach said that Wilson had used a hammer and knife to allegedly kill the two boys, but had not harmed either their mother or a younger sibling who were in the home at the time. The boys' father was not home when they died. 
It's unclear what time the boys were killed. 
'Very quickly detectives honed in on Wilson and immediately established this individual was only a threat to those around him,' DeLoach said on his Facebook page. 
'Unfortunately, Robert and Tayten were the ones who suffered whatever was going through Wilson’s twisted agenda.'

Authorities have not yet revealed a possible motive behind the boys' deaths.  
Police said the Baker family had only just moved from Florida's Polk County to Putnam County 16 days prior to the incident to be closer to family. 
'The Baker family did a lot to help these two individuals and, unfortunately, it ended in the brutal death of Robert and Tayten,' DeLoach said during the press conference, according to News 4 Jax. 'We’re grieving, along with the family.' 
In his Facebook post, DeLoach wrote that: 'This arrest is only the first step in bringing Robert and Tayten justice. My sincere hope is that the death penalty is pursued in these senseless murders.' 
Police as still investigating to see if anyone else was involved in the boys' murder.  
Wilson now faces two counts of first degree, premeditated murder and is expected to make his court appearance via Zoom on Saturday morning.
He is currently being held in jail without bond.
