CLARE, Mich. (AP) — A woman is charged with killing her father, sister and two handymen in mid-Michigan.

The Clare County prosecutor says 54-year-old Judy Boyer had a journal with names of other people whom she wanted to kill.

Bond was set at $1 million Friday, and a not-guilty plea was entered on Boyer’s behalf.

Authorities haven’t disclosed a motive for the killings.

The victims were Henry Boyer, his daughter Patricia Boyer, Zachary Salminen and Wade Bacon. Salminen and Bacon were at Henry Boyer’s home to fix the roof and handle other jobs before cold weather arrived. Judy Boyer lived across the street.
