Teenager is charged in family killings
An Oklahoma 16-year-old will be charged as an adult in the stabbing deaths of his parents and three siblings at a suburban Tulsa home, authorities said Saturday.
The suspect will face the same counts as his brother Robert Bever, 18, who is accused of five counts of first-degree murder and a count of aggravated assault in the Wednesday night attack in Broken Arrow.
Police have not released the 16-year-old’s name, but Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler confirmed that both siblings have been booked on first-degree murder complaints.
The brothers are accused of fatally stabbing their parents, David Bever, 52, and April Bever, 44, and siblings Daniel, 12, Christopher, 7, and Victoria, 5. A 13-yearold sister was in serious but stable condition in a hospital, and a 2-year-old sister wasn’t harmed.
