Judge to consider sealing audio of 911 call, other records in Oklahoma family stabbing deaths

Attorneys for two Oklahoma brothers charged in the stabbing deaths of their parents and three siblings at their house in suburban Tulsa are asking a judge to halt the release of records they say could jeopardize their chances of a fair trial.

A Tulsa district judge is to hear arguments Wednesday on behalf of 18-year-old Robert Bever and 16-year-old Michael Bever. They have been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the July 22 attack at their Broken Arrow home.

A judge entered not guilty pleas for them on Monday. Authorities haven't released a motive.

Broken Arrow officials have yet to release to media a recording of a 911 call and other records in the investigation. A Broken Arrow police sergeant last week described the 911 call as "gruesome."
