Police: Texas teen, boyfriend spent month planning fatal attack
EMORY, Texas (AP) -- A high school couple forced to break up spent about a month plotting to kill the girl's parents before her mother and two younger brothers were fatally shot and stabbed in a weekend ambush, according to records released Monday.
Charlie James Wilkinson, who had been dating Penny and Terry Caffey's 16-year-old daughter, told police his girlfriend wanted her parents dead because they forbade their relationship, according to Rains County Sheriff Department investigators.
"Wilkinson stated that he and [the girl] were in love and the only way they could be together is to kill the parents," the arrest affidavit stated.
The daughter, Wilkinson, 19, Charles Allen Waid, 20, and Bobbi Gale Johnson, 18, are each charged with three counts of capital murder in the predawn Saturday killings at the Caffeys' secluded home. The girl has not been identified because of her age. All four were being held Monday on $1.5 million bond.
According to the affidavit, Waid, a friend of Wilkinson's, was offered about $2,000 to join the plot, although it doesn't specify who offered him the money.
Wilkinson and Waid broke into the house around 4 a.m. Saturday and fired on the parents while they slept, according to the affidavit. The two then went upstairs and fatally shot Mathew Caffey, 13, and stabbed Tyler Caffey, 8, with a sword, it says.
Wilkinson and Waid took cash and jewelry, then set fire to furniture and laundry to cover up the killings before leaving with the Caffeys' daughter and Johnson, who were waiting in a car parked down the road, the affidavit states.
Afterward, "Wilkinson stated that he and [the girl] had sex and slept," investigators wrote.
Man, if something like this dosen't make you rethink having kids, nothing will. I mean, Christ on a pogo stick, killing your entire family because you couldn't date some asshole? Not only killing everyone but then fucking the asshole and going to bed afterwards? That's some cold and twisted shit there. Someone should have slapped the hell out of the murdering whore. Even if you were some nutjob and think that her killing her parents was somehow defensible, the fact that she whacked her brothers too puts the nail in this coffin. Stabbing a sleeping eight year old with a sword? WTF?
There should definitely be some meanass capital punishment for this sort of bullshit. Hell, the death penalty is too mild for the type of whoopass that should be meted out for this sort of thing. Lethal injection is generally quick and relatively painless after all. These fuckers should all be treated to something agonizingly painful that lingers for a few hours.
