A Norfolk, Virginia, teen admitted in court earlier this week that he attacked his parents, killing both, because of common punishments “like my dad taking my iPod and stuff.”

Vincent Parker, 16, first attacked his mother Carol, reports WTKR.

She was exiting their home’s upstairs bathroom when he said he used pepper spray and then beat her. He admits to using a baseball bat and crowbar during the attack.

“I just remember getting mad,” he told investigators. “It’s all from my dad. All this stuff like my dad taking away my iPod and stuff.”

When his father returned home, the high school sophomore attacked him, using a crowbar and knife.

The honor-roll student pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder this week and will be sentenced in September.
