OCALA, Fla. —

Two central Florida teenagers are accused in a throat-slashing attack on the mother of one of the teens.

Circuit Judge David Eddy on Monday set an arraignment hearing for the 15-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl who are said to have planned to attack the girl's family so they could be together.

The Ocala Star-Banner (http://bit.ly/1ltveZO) reports that authorities say the attack happened early Sunday when the girl lured her mother into the garage, where the boy was waiting with a kitchen knife. After slashing the mother's throat, the boy went into the master bedroom and confronted the father. Instead, he was convinced to drive the mother to the hospital, where she's now recovering.

The parents opposed the teens' relationship.

The judge appointed public defenders to represent both teens.
