CLARE, Michigan (TAUT) — A woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to murdering her father, sister and two handymen in rural central Michigan last year.

Judy Boyer, 55, of Farwell, admitted in court to killing all four with a .22-caliber rifle on Oct. 20, 2021, the Morning Sun reported.

Police were called to her father’s house that day over reports that two people had been shot and injured. They found four victims: Henry Boyer, 85, daughter Patricia Boyer, 61, Zachary Salminen, 36, and Wade Bacon, 39. All were shot at Boyer’s home in Grant Township.

Bacon and Salminen were there to work on the roof, authorities said.

Judy Boyer pleaded guilty to first degree murder in the deaths of her father and sister and second degree for the killing of Salminen and Bacon, Clare County prosecutor Michelle Ambrozaitis said.

First-degree murder carries a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

A hearing is scheduled for November.

Authorities have provided few details about the four murders or motives, but said Boyer had a list of possible other victims.
