Sons of West Palm Beach machete victims: Suspect had been arguing with couple for some time

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A West Palm Beach family is still picking up the pieces after brutal machete attack in suburban West Palm Beach. 

Now the victims' family is telling WPTV that unfortunately, they saw this attack coming. 

We spoke with the two young sons of Claudia Morales and Mauro Londono on Thursday night outside of the home where the attack happened.

The sons deny claims from neighbors that this whole incident happened over an argument about a dog. 

They wouldn't go on camera and offered no details - only saying that a neighbor, Amado Lago, had been arguing with their parents for some time.

The brothers, who lived at the parent's home, say they went as far as pursuing a restraining order against Lago, but never got it.  

Investigators say Lago killed Mauro Londono with a machete, and attacked Morales.

When deputies arrived, one fatally shot Lago after investigators say, he charged at them with the machete.

Morales suffered large lacerations to her arm and her head, but she's expected to recover.

The sons say they'll remain at the hospital by their mom's side. 

As for their father, they say he was a good, kind man who didn't deserve such a brutal end.

PBSO is still investigating this case.
