TROIS-RIVIERES, Que. – Drug use, dark clothes and dark thoughts - two Quebec teens showed radical personality changes leading up to the triple murders that landed them behind bars, friends tell QMI Agency.

People close to the 17-year-old defendants paint a picture of lovelorn teenagers who stoked each other's worst instincts while allegedly plotting and carrying out the murders.

Raphaelle Boisvert and her boyfriend Jessy Chevalier, both 17, and Raphaelle's sister, Roxanne, 22, were shot and killed Tuesday morning in the sisters' family home about 90 minutes northeast of Montreal.

The boys were arrested outside the home and are also charged with plotting to kill the girls' mother as well as police officers.
