DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) – A 19-year-old man charged with killing his newspaper publisher father, his mother and his sister has been transferred to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections to serve a sentence on another charge.

Alan Hruby was moved from the Stephens County jail to the Department of Corrections’ facility in Lexington on Friday to begin a three-year sentence fraudulently opening a credit card in the name of his grandmother.

Hruby pleaded guilty to the charge in January and was placed in a delayed sentencing program, but that was revoked in October after Hruby was charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his father, John Hruby; his mother, Tinker Hruby; and his sister, Katherine Hruby.

John Hruby was publisher of the weekly newspaper The Marlow Review.
