TUCUMCARI -- A teen accused of killing family members won't be tried as an adult.

The juvenile is facing two counts of murder for the deaths of Sherry Folts and Sue Day.

Court records show that the juvenile allegedly admitted to stabbing Folts but says after, blacked out and doesn't remember shooting Sue Day.

The teen was a foster child in the home of the two women killed. 

The next court date for the juvenile is set for August 14.
