(Newser) – The daughter of a murdered couple and her boyfriend have confessed to killing the young woman's parents and four other relatives, according to police. Michele Anderson, 29, and her live-in lover gunned down Anderson's parents Christmas Eve at their home outside Seattle, police said. When Anderson's brother, his wife and two young children arrived, they were also shot dead to eliminate witnesses.

Anderson and her boyfriend dated for six years and lived in a trailer about 200 yards from her parents' house. Money may have been a factor in the crime, and Anderson "felt she wasn't loved enough and everyone didn't appreciate her," said a grandson. The couple is being held without bail. Formal charges are expected to be filed today.
