The member of the religious gang who murdered two Kansas mothers had already tried to kill her daughter-in-law once before and planned out her killing this time around, newly revealed case details show. 

Veronica Butler, 27, and Jilian Kelley, 39, were traveling together to pick up Butler’s children, ages six and eight, on March 30, when they disappeared about three miles from their destination.

Their bodies were recovered after ‘pools of blood’ were found next to their empty car. Butler was going through a nasty divorce and custody battle and Kelley, a pastor’s wife, was one of her supervisors for her visitations with the kids.

Tifany Adams, 54, the children’s grandmother and her boyfriend, Tad Cullum, 43, were arrested alongside Cole Twombly, 50, and Cora Twombly, 44, in a huge Oklahoma SWAT raid last weekend.

Investigators are begining to reveal what they’ve discovered about the killings and wrote in affidavits filed in court that this wasn’t even the first time Adams’ group had tried to kill Butler.

Adams’ son, Wrangler Rickman, technically had custody of his and Butler’s two children but he was confirmed to be in an Oklahoma rehab facility, leaving the kids largely under Adams’ supervision.

Butler had wanted more than the weekly mandated visits with her kids under supervisors such as Kelley, but Adams – who was also known to have kept Rickman away from the children – had no desire to give in.

Adams and Cullum had plotted to kill Butler previously in February, according to a witness.

They created that plan to make it look like an accident, ‘because anvils regularly fall off of work vehicles,’ records said. 

The couple had gone as far as traveling to Butler’s Hugoton, Kansas, home to pull off the plan but Butler never left her house, CNN reported. 

It appears Adams had a more detailed plan to eliminate the mother of her grandchildren the second time around.

Search records recovered for Adams showed she had looked up the level of pain caused by a taser, various gun shops and how to buy prepaid cell phones.

Adams, later in February, went to a Walmart and bought three prepaid, unregistered phones.

In March, Butler filed a motion to grant her more visitation time with her children. Days later, Adams purchased five stun guns from a nearby gun shop. 

On Easter weekend, Butler was set to take the kids to a birthday party with family after picking them up from Adams.

Adams claims Butler told her she could not make the kids visit during a phone call the morning of March 30, but records show Butler was already on her way to picking up Kelley.

Kelley, it should be noted, is not the regular supervisor of Butler’s visits. A woman named Cheryl Brune usually went with Butler, but Butler believed she was unavailable that day.

Burne, however, told police that she had been available but Adams had called her and told her to take a couple of weeks off.  

Adams and Cullum met up with Cora and Cole Twombly, according to Cora’s 16-year-old daughter, who said they were on a ‘mission.’

The suspects accused of killing two Kansas mothers belonged to a creepy anti-governmental religious gang known as ‘God’s Misfits,’ which the teenager confirmed to police. 

She added that the organization met weekly at either the Twomblys’ home or that of another member.

The girl told police the group had discussed the safety of Adams’ children, saying that it was at risk if they were with Butler.

The group had all been provided with burner phones so that they wouldn’t be using personal devices. Adams had left the grandchildren at the home of another ‘God’s Misfits’ couple that hosted meetings the night before the killings.

Cullum was working the night before on a pasture that he rented to let cattle graze and asked the owner if he could do some heavier work on the land.

The landowner told police he was going to use a skid steer and a bulldozer to remove a tree and bury concrete. 

When the Twomblys’ daughter woke up on Saturday morning, her mother and Cole Twombly were gone as they said they’d be.  

When they arrived home a couple of hours later, they ordered the girl to clean the inside of their Chevrolet truck. She asked them what had happened and they shockingly admitted to the killings.

They responded the mission had not gone as they planned but they no longer had to worry about Veronica Butler, the girl told police. 

The two adults said they’d blocked the road to stop Butler and Kelley and lured them to where the other members were waiting for them, including a person who is not Adams or Cullum.  

Cora Twombly was asked if they had put the bodies in a well. She responded: ‘Something like that.’

The daughter asked why Kelley had to die and Twombly said that her supporting Butler made her guilty by association. 

Adams picked up her two grandchildren around the same time the Twomblys got back home, according to police.

Melissa and Joey Padilla, two relatives of Butler, went out and searched for her after she didn’t arrive with the kids at the party. 

They eventually found the abandoned vehicle and contacted police, who began their investigation. 

Police took days to find the bodies, as there are no traffic cameras or homes anywhere nearby.

They were eventually able to track the burner phones to the property Cullum had worked on that night, about eight-and-a-half miles from where Butler’s car had been found. 

Police say the drive it took to get there fits with the time between when the group’s burner phones had stopped transmitting and when they arrived at the pasture.

Authorities said all three phones were discovered near Butler’s car around the time she and Kelley disappeared. 

They discovered a hole that was dug, filled back in and covered with hay on the pasture. 

Inside the hole, they found two sets of remains confirmed to be Butler and Kelley.

Most tragically, it was revealed by an attorney for Butler that this past Wednesday was likely to be the day her client was finally granted unsupervised visitation with her children.

Instead, it was the first court date for Adams, Cullum and the Twomblys as they stand accused of killing the mother-of-two.

On Wednesday, the suspects were arraigned at an Oklahoma court where they were denied bail. 

Butler’s relatives had to be restrained from the accused during their appearance, with family members screaming that Adams was a ‘f****ing b****’ while the others were ‘sorry pieces of sh*t’.

The victims’ loved ones took up three rows of the packed courthouse and could be heard sobbing throughout.

After the hearing, Butler’s aunt told reporters that her niece did not deserve to die.

‘There’s just too many emotions, so much anger,’ she told NewsNation. ‘I don’t understand how somebody can hate somebody so much that you want to kill them.

‘My niece did not deserve that and neither did the young lady with her. She was just there to help her.’
