Charges Filed in Auxvasse Arson, Homicides
AUXVASSE (AP) -- A couple has been charged in the killings of a father and daughter whose bodies were found in the rubble of a burned central-Missouri home.
A probable cause statement filed Friday says 27-year-old Jacie Coari confessed to taking Ryan Coari to Michael Wieberg's mobile home so her husband could rob the 56-year-old victim. She told authorities her 28-year-old husband later admitted he had bound and killed Wieberg and his 33-year-old daughter, Amanda Wieberg.
The probable cause statement also says Ryan Coari confessed to starting the fire in the home outside Auxvasse.
Ryan Coari faces two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and one count of arson in Callaway County Circuit Court. His wife faces two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted robbery.
