Brothers plead not guilty to stabbing five family members to death
Two brothers charged with stabbing their parents and three siblings to death at their Oklahoma home last month have pleaded not guilty.
Eighteen-year-old Robert Bever and his 16-year-old brother Michael appeared in court via video.
A judge entered not guilty pleas on their behalf and scheduled a preliminary hearing for October 28.
Lawyers for the two declined to comment.
The brothers are charged with five counts of first-degree murder each in the July 22 deaths of their parents, two brothers and a sister at their home in Broken Arrow, a Tulsa suburb.
They are also accused of stabbing their 13-year-old sister, who survived. A toddler was found in the home unharmed.
An Oklahoma city official said last Tuesday it wouldn’t release a recording of the 911 call made following the horrific crime.
