TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa man accused of killing his 5-year-old son during a police standoff has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1PeZS68 ) reports that 37-year-old Bryon Keith Creech is charged with first-degree murder in the March 19 death of his son, Braydon. Creech also faces counts of shooting with intent to kill, kidnapping, child abuse, child neglect, second-degree burglary and violating a protective order.
Creech engaged police in a 16-hour standoff after he was discovered in his wife’s apartment. A police affidavit alleges he violated a protective order and forced entry to her apartment. Creech and his wife were in divorce proceedings at the time.
He is scheduled to return to court Monday for a district court arraignment.
