Teenager is charged in fam­ily killings

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

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.
