Instead of charging these people with obstruction, lying to police and destroying evidence, why can't they be charged as co-conspirators, before or after the fact?

    I think the current charges are the right ones. I don't see evidence of a conspiracy here. A conspiracy requires an agreement before the crime. Now they may well have conspired to cover it up or conceal their relationship after the fact, but that's a different crime--one for which they are already charged. Obstruction of justice really covers it all.
