Four people are in custody, accused of a grisly crime. Police say they killed a 17-year-old in June over a debt he reportedly owed, reports WSVN.

Kaheem Arbelo, 20; Jonathan Lucas, 18; Christian Colon, 19; and Desiree Strickland, 17, are all charged with the murder of Jose Guardado, 17. Police say he was killed on June 28. His body was found three days after he went missing. It was located in an area near where he and the four suspects lived and went to school.

According to the police report, Guardado was lured into a wooded area near the school, where the killers had already dug a grave and had a machete waiting.

Arbelo allegedly swung the machete as the others looked on. Police say three of the suspects have confessed.

According to the police report, as Guardado was on the ground dying, he was ordered to lie in the grave. His body was then burned and buried. The report goes on to say Arbelo and Strickland had sex nearby before leaving the woods.
