The teens told police they waited in the house until Dan Wortham got home from his job Friday at Mr. Rooter Plumbing, then killed him using a baseball bat, sword and foot-long box wrench.
"Jackie admitted that she did hit her father once with a baseball bat during this fight," McGovern said. "They both hatched this plan."
Wortham’s injuries showed signs of a struggle, according to police.
Jackie told police she’s pregnant with Washington’s baby and that her father did not want her to have the child.
Friends and neighbors are skeptical of that, saying Jackie often lied about being pregnant or miscarrying. She also told police she wanted to be emancipated from her father but that he would not allow it.
"Every time she did runway he’d file a runway report and she was brought back home," McGovern said. "That upset her, too.”
