Brothers Justin, 15, and Dante Robinson, 17, were turned into the police by their mother for allegedly murdering 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale, in Clayton, New Jersey.
Their mom saw Justin's Facebook message: “Might be moving :(” on Sunday and became suspicious, reports the New York Post.
She told the police that Justin might have been involved in the disappearance of their young neighbor Pasquale.
Pasquale was lured to the Robinson home on Saturday because they wanted parts from her BMX bike.
Her strangled body was found stuffed in a recycling bin near the boys’ house on Monday, reports NBC Philadelphia.
Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said that when police searched the Robinson home, they found some of Pasquale’s belongings and her bike.
The brothers were charged with murder, body disposal and tampering with evidence. Justin was also charged with luring the child.
