(Scroll down for video) A young teen pleaded guilty to killing both of his parents.

Tenth-grader Vincent Parker, was angry when his father took his iPod away as punishment.

Parker, like many teens, did not like being told what to do or to be punished for his actions. Out of anger he murdered his mother Carol, 57, and his father Wayne, 55, in their Norfolk, Virginia, home.

Now, 16-year-old Vincent Parker entered his guilty plea, and is scheduled to be sentenced as an adult in the Norfolk Circuit Court.

Parker admitted that on the day of the incident, he left school early while his father was still at work. He then went upstairs and pepper-sprayed his mother. After blinding his mother, he stabbed and hit her with a crowbar and a baseball bat.

When his father came home from work, Vincent attacked him with an iron bar and stabbed him several times.

Five bloody knives, a baseball bat and a crowbar were recovered at the scene. Vincent’s DNA was also found in the house and his father’s DNA was found on the bloody shirt Vincent was wearing.

The teen’s father lived long enough to call 911 after the bloody attack. When emergency crews arrived, he told them what had happened.

The mother was pronounced dead at the scene. The father was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
