Feuding daughter blamed for Carnation killings
CARNATION, Wash. (AP) - The King County sheriff's office says a long-standing dispute between a woman and her parents led to the killing of the parents and four other family members on Christmas Eve at their Carnation home.
Sgt. John Urquhart (URK'-hart) says there were several issues involved in the dispute. He says more information will come out tomorrow when King County prosecutors are expected to file charges.
Urquhart says one body was removed yesterday from the home - the 61-year-old homeowner. The other victims are his wife, their daughter and son-in-law and the younger couple's 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.
Sheriff's detectives and investigators from the State Patrol crime lab are processing the scene today, looking for evidence.
The two people arrested in the case could be making their first court appearance today in Seattle. Michele Anderson and her boyfriend Joseph McEnroe, both 29, are jailed for investigation of murder. They lived in a mobile home on the property owned by her parents, Wayne and Judy Anderson.
A grandson, Ben Anderson, told reporters that his aunt - Michele Anderson - felt unappreciated and had a dispute with her parents over money.
Names of the victims have not officially been released. Friends and relatives say they are Wayne and Judy Anderson, their son Scott and his wife Erica, and their two young children Olivia and Nathan.
