PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida teen has been arrested after police say a murder-for-hire contract to kill the boy’s family was found in his room.

Port St. Lucie police say the note was an agreement between the teen and a friend that the friend would kill the boy’s father, stepmother and stepbrother for $1,200.

Under questioning, police say the 14-year-old was plotting for the family members to be killed in a burglary-gone-bad scenario.

The friend told police he thought it was a joke.

The teen has been arrested and charged with solicitation to commit first-degree murder.
