Duncan man accused of murdering his family pleads not guilty
DUNCAN, Okla. – A Duncan man accused of murdering his family pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Thursday.
Alan Hruby, 20, allegedly stole his father’s gun, then shot his mom, sister, and dad inside their Duncan home.
John, Tinker, and Katherine Hruby were found shot to death in their kitchen on October 13.
Alan Hruby was charged with three counts of first-degree murder after allegedly confessing to the murders the next day.
On August 20, Hruby pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Not long before the murders, Alan Hurby’s parents cut off his finances after he took out a credit card in his grandmother’s name and charged thousands of dollars on it.
Investigators say money was the motive in the murders and that Alan Hruby was a shopaholic hoping to cash in on his family’s inheritance.
He also told the local paper that he welcomed the death penalty, saying the crime “is so horrible it is deserved.”
His trial date is set for April.
