Broken Arrow doesn’t release records in stabbing deaths

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) – The city of Broken Arrow has offered no explanation for not releasing a recording of a 911 call and other records generated in the investigation into the stabbing deaths of a family last month.

City Attorney Beth Anne Wilkening had promised to release the records to reporters Tuesday, but calls and emails to her office went unreturned.

Meanwhile, a Tulsa district judge is to hear testimony Wednesday on a protective order filed by attorneys for the brothers charged in the case seeking a halt to the release of the records.

Eighteen-year-old Robert Bever and 16-year-old Michael Bever were charged last week with five counts of first-degree murder in the July 22 stabbing deaths of their parents and three siblings. A judge entered not guilty pleas for both on Monday.
