MULBERRY, Fla. – The man who brutally murdered the two-boys in Melrose, has been arrested and charged.

“Mark Wilson, the sick monster responsible for Tayten and Robert’s brutal murder was arrested last night,” said Sheriff H.D. “Gator” DeLoach on Friday.

Wilson has been charged with the premeditated first-degree murders of Tayten (14) and Robert Baker (12), pictured here with their Mulberry Panthers shirts on.

According to Sheriff Gator DeLoach, the Baker family had moved from Polk County to Melrose to be closer to family and to help support them. The boys’ parents offered the aunt and Wilson a place to live on their property.

State Attorney R.J. Larizza said during a Friday morning news conference that Wilson “attacked those two kids without mercy.”

Sheriff H.D. “Gator” DeLoach says investigators found the murder weapons a knife and hammer.

“Very quickly detectives honed in on Wilson and immediately established this individual was only a threat to those around him. Unfortunately, Robert and Tayten were the ones who suffered whatever was going through Wilson’s twisted agenda. As a parent, the murders of Robert and Tayten are an unimaginable loss to a family. I can’t begin to understand the anguish their parents are suffering,” said Sheriff H.D. “Gator” DeLoach.

DeLoach added, “I am grateful to the members of our community who called in with information and to our dedicated staff at the sheriff’s office who worked tirelessly together to bring this grieving family some closure. This arrest is only the first step in bringing Robert and Tayten justice. My sincere hope is that the death penalty is pursued in these senseless murders.”

Wilson is facing two counts of first degree, premeditated murder. He is being held without bond.

Wilson’s first appearance is scheduled for Saturday morning.
