In an emotional police interview re-played in a Rio Grande County District courtroom today, the 15-year-old accused of killing his mother and step-father last October in their rural Monte Vista home, told investigators he was done with the chores, the names, and the abuse.
"I didn't want to hurt anymore," he said in the interview, taped the day police found the bodies of his mother and stepfather, Joanne and Tracy Rinebarger.
Caudle told the investigators he had returned from school Oct. 26 and "just looked at" his mother. She railed him about chores. He was already grounded for two weeks for "pitching a fit" about yard work. She called him names, he said.
What names? asked Det. Amy Frank with the Park County Sheriff's Office.

Judge Martin Gonzalez decided late Thursday there is enough evidence to bind Caudle over for trial on all counts. Caudle will be held without bond. A pre-trial hearing is set for next month.
