A Texas teen has been charged with killing a couple after telling a pack of reporters that the murdered husband and wife were "mean."

Jorge Carmond was interviewed following the deaths of his neighbors, John Smith, 61, and his wife, Melinda, 59, according to MySA.com.

Unbelievably, a cop took the 17-year-old aside mid-interview and, hours later, he was charged with murder.

The teen reportedly refused to appear on camera, insisting only that his voice be recorded, not long after the Smiths were found brutally stabbed to death.

Carmond told reporters his name was "George Bravo" and said he lived on the same same block as the victims. 

"They didn't really like me, you know," Carmond told reporters. "They were pretty mean."

Following up on a suspicious person report, a sergeant with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office pulled Carmond aside for questioning.

"Through the process of the investigation, investigators gathered enough information to charge and book Jorge Carmond for capital murder," the sheriff's office said in a statement. 

Deputies first responded to the area after a call about an argument heard at the Smith residence and a reported gunshot. Mrs. Smith was found dead inside the home. Mr. Smith was critically injured on the porch and pronounced dead as he was rushed to a hospital.

Police have not disclosed a potential motive.
