A 15-year-old Brooklyn girl killed her mother and her mother’s boyfriend before going out to party at Times Square on New Year’s Eve, police said.

NYPD detectives said Destiny Garcia confessed during questioning.

Garcia has been charged as an adult with two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, reported ABC11.

Victims Rosie Sanchez, 38, and her boyfriend Anderson Nunez, 40, were found at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday night. The bodies were there since December 27.

Sanchez and Nunez shared an apartment on Batchelder Street, in a public housing complex, reported the New York Times.

Sanchez had been shot multiple times while Nunez had been shot and stabbed multiple times.

Prosecutors said in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Monday that Garcia had an accomplice, a 15-year-old boy who supplied the gun. Police are searching for him.

Garcia told detectives her mother had been “physically abusive” to her in the past.
