(NECN: Alysha Palumbo, Boston, Mass.) - Four New Hampshire teens were charged in connection with the murder of a Mont Vernon mother.
Two of the teens were accused of attacking Kim Cates and her daughter with a machete and a knife in their rural Mont Vernon home.
Although seriously injured in the attack, 11-year-old Jaime Cates was expected to survive. Her father was reportedly at her bedside at Children's Hospital in Boston.
New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Will Delker said the teens picked the home at random, but all four knew the plan was to kill whoever was home.
Steven Spader, 17, and Christopher Gribble, 19, were charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder on Tuesday.
Williams Marks and Quinn Glover were charged with armed robbery, but prosecutors said these two knew the plan was to kill anyone in the home.
"Those two defendants were aware going into the home that, if there was someone in the home, that they would kill them," Delker said.
