The 16-year-old Texas girl charged with killing her mother and brothers didn't decide to murder her family on a whim. Erin Caffey and her boyfriend discussed the homicide “for about a month,” according to police reports. Caffey waited outside in a car while the boyfriend and an accomplice allegedly shot Caffey’s parents and shot and stabbed her brothers with a “sword,” reports the Tyler Morning Telegraph.
“It was decided to just walk in there and take care of business,” the accomplice told investigators, saying he’d been promised $2,000. After the predawn murders, the pair set fire to the house to conceal evidence. Caffey’s father survived, crawling to a neighbor’s house despite bullets in his head and chest.
