Judge agrees to delay hearing for Oklahoma brothers accused of murdering family
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – It was a case that stunned Oklahomans earlier this year.
On July 22, Broken Arrow police were called to a home after receiving a disturbing 911 call.
When officers arrived, they stumbled upon a horrific scene.
They found a 13-year-old girl suffering from multiple stab wounds. Despite being critically injured, the girl told police that her eldest brothers had attacked her family.
All of the victims were stabbed to death.
A 2-year-old girl, who was unharmed, was also found inside the home.
Officers discovered fresh footprints, and eventually arrested 16-year-old Michael Bever and 18-year-old Robert Bever for the crimes.
Robert Bever’s attorney says she needs more time to consult psychological experts before cross-examining the 13-year-old girl who survived the attack. She says she wants to be prepared without putting the girl through anymore unnecessary trauma.
Michael Bever’s attorney says he is challenging the state law that lists his client as an adult.
The brothers are being tried as adults and have pleaded not guilty.
