Gwinnett County Homicide Detective Dave Brucz reportedly testified last year that Bjorge confessed to the crime.

"Johnny began to attack the grandfather," testified Brucz, "Cassie then said that she basically had a surge of energy. She then dragged her grandmother into her grandfather's bedroom. She was duct-taped."

Police also reportedly say that Bjorge and Rider planned to kill several other people, including Rider's family and Bjorge's mother, but that Rider backed out of the plan. They are, however, accused of trying to kill Rider's sister and her boyfriend.
