The two teens at the center of a Macomb County murder case shared a horrible secret that wasn't exposed until another teen stepped forward.

The former couple were no strangers to trouble.

Long before Andrew Fiacco and Evette McDonald stood before a judge accused of a gruesome crime, the warning signs were there.

Fiacco allegedly shot and killed his best friend, Stephen McAfee, dismembered the body with an ax, and buried the remains in two different locations in Macomb County.

McDonald knew and kept quiet.

But six months after McAfee disappeared, the teens were clearly a dangerous couple.

In September, Fiacco shot up a Comerica Bank atm. McDonald was in the car.

Now free on bond, McDonald could not be reached at the home where her mother lives or at the address for her grandmother.

Fiacco is being held without bond, charged with first-degree murder and facing life without parole.

McDonald will finish high school on schedule this year.

Both cases are on hold for 3 weeks while defense attorneys get the evidence from prosecutors.
