Detectives testified in court Wednesday that Cassie Bjorge confessed to killing her grandparents, Wendy and Randall Bjorge, but also said she and her boyfriend, Johnny Rider, planned to murder several other family members.
“She also said they were planning on killing Johnny's family and there was plans on killing her mother also,” Gwinnett County Homicide Detective Dave Brucz testified Wednesday.
Police said Cassie Bjorge told them in a taped confession, Rider backed off the plans when he spotted cars he didn't know parked in the family’s driveway.

Rider’s sibling escaped, and that led to the teens' capture more than a week after the grandparents’ murders.
“She had basically had enough of her grandparents,” Brucz said.
Police say the teens used a tire iron, hammer, baseball bat and butcher knives to beat and slice the throats of the grandparents, then caulked two doors inside the home, as well as the front door, to try and seal the smell of death inside.
"Johnny began to attack the grandfather. Bjorge then said she had a surge of energy,” Brucz said. “She then dragged her grandmother into her grandfather’s bedroom. She was duct taped.”
