A judge decided Monday to keep the teens in custody while authorities continue to investigate. Currently, the teen suspects face juvenile charges of first-degree murder, armed criminal action and burglary.

The teens are accused of killing 70-year-old Paul Brooks and his wife, 69-year-old Margaret Brooks, of Baldwin, in Michigan's Lake County. Their bodies were found Thursday night at a home south of Table Rock Lake, where they were seasonal residents.

A man saw two suspicious young men near the home and held them at gunpoint until authorities arrived. The teens had recently run away from Lives Under Construction Ranch, a nearby facility for at-risk youth.
