A U-Haul employee in Michigan called authorities after being suspicious of the pair. Callaway County authorities then went to Michigan and interviewed them about the Wieberg murders.Earlier this month, both Ryan and Jacie waived their rights to challenge extradition.Court records show Jacie Coari admitted to dropping her husband off at Mike Wiebergs so he could rob him. Ryan Coari is accused of shooting Michael and his daughter Amanda. The Wiebergs were found in Michael's home after it was burned to the ground. A coroner determined both died before the fire began.
