Police say a Kentucky teen and his friend are facing charges after plotting to kill his parents.

According to media reports, deputies responded to a stabbing early Wednesday at a home near Somerset. Lt. Det. Brett Whitaker said that despite having stab wounds, the homeowner was able to overpower the man who attacked him and hold him until police arrived.

Whitaker said detectives determined the homeowner's 17-year-old son had asked his friend, 18-year-old Paul Scott Young, to kill his parents. Whitaker said police are still searching for a motive.

Police did not name the juvenile, but said he is charged with criminal solicitation to murder, and Young is charged with attempted murder. Jail records don't indicate whether Young has an attorney.
