A 15-year-old boy and girl have been charged in the homicide of a 20-year-old mom stabbed to death in her father’s Bronx apartment building last week, authorities said.

Nyla Bond, 20, was stabbed in her chest by an unidentified killer at the Mount Eden property Nov. 2 around 6:45 p.m., an apparent act of revenge for sharing explicit photos of the female killer, authorities said.

The pair of teens are charged with both murder and manslaughter in the homicide.

Their names were not immediately made public by police.

Investigators believe Bond and the teen girl had a relationship. When she learned explicit photos of her were making the rounds, she blamed Bond and brought the teen boy along to confront her.

It was not immediately clear Tuesday whether the teens had legal representation.
