Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a brutal double murder of a gay couple in Cancun, Mexico. Police say they continue looking for two more teens, reports the Spanish language news service EFE.

Ricardo Humberto Santos and Cesar Castillo were the victims of an apparent homophobic attack in their home last Saturday. The teens, ages 14 and 15, planned on injuring then robbing the couple of a car and a plasma screen television, but killed them instead. The teens then took off with several worthless electronic devices, including a DVD player. Police say the minors lived only 3 houses away and had been inside the house previously.

Two other teenagers, both 16, are wanted by the police as suspected accomplices.

Neither teen showed any sign of repentance in his confession. It is suspected they both belong to the neighborhood gang Wet Side.

According to the police, the men were killed while engaged in sex with the teens. Results of an autopsy showed that Santos was stabbed 38 times and Castillo 34. The boys confessed to police the gory details of slicing one of the pair's throat while having oral sex.

A series of homophobic messages written on the walls of the slain couple's home lead the police to the teens, Cancun police chief Luis Felipe Ortiz Seca told EFE Wednesday.
