SEATTLE — The woman and her boyfriend accused of killing six members of her family on Christmas Eve at Carnation are being arraigned in Seattle.
King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg is deciding whether to seek the death penalty if Michele Anderson and Joseph McEnroe are convicted of their aggravated murder charges.
At a hearing Tuesday a judge said the two will not have to wear shackles or jail jumpsuits because that could influence people who could be selected as jurors.
Investigators say a family feud apparently led the pair to gun down Anderson's parents, her brother, his wife, and their two young children.
The victims were 60-year-old Boeing engineer Wayne Anderson, 61-year-old Carnation postal carrier Judy Anderson, their 32-year-old son Scott, who was a construction foreman, and his 32-year-old wife Erica, and their children, 5-year-old Olivia and 3-year-old Nathan.
