SEATTLE, Wash. - A woman and her boyfriend accused of killing six family members on Christmas Eve at a Carnation home will answer aggravated murder charges at their Jan. 9 arraignment in King County Superior Court.

Michele Anderson and Joseph McEnroe are charged with killing her parents, her brother, his wife and their two young children. The victims are Wayne and Judy Anderson, who were in their 60s, Scott and Erica Anderson who were both 32, and their children, 6-year-old Olivia and 3-year-old Nathan.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg announced the charges at a news conference in Seattle. He says he's deciding whether to seek the death penalty. The aggravating factors are the multiple victims and that some of the killings were convicted to cover up the first deaths.

Satterberg and King County Sheriff Sue Rahr said that two guns were used in the killings and that Michele Anderson and McEnroe both fire each gun. The officials said the two planned to kill all six.

The officials said that Erica attempted called 911 and was shot. Dispatchers got a hang-up call. Deputies who went to the scene were turned back by a locked gate. Rahr says that's under investigation but she believes all six were dead at that point.

The officials said the McEnroe killed the children last and apologized to each one before shooting them in the head at close range.
