Brothers Killed Family And Intended To Kill More

In Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, authorities arrested 16-year-old Michael Bever and 18-year-old Robert Bever for the murder of five people on July 22.

Inside the families home, authorities found the bodies of 52-year-old David Bever, 44-year-old April Bever, a 5-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy. A 13-year-old girl was stabbed, but she survived. She told police that her eldest brothers had committed the horrific crimes.

On Tuesday, the brothers attended a hearing to see whether they would be held for trial. According to testimony at the hearing, detectives say that Robert Bever wanted "to have some sort of fame or notoriety for being a serial killer." Robert also described killing as "a hobby." The boys had a 2-year-old sister that was unharmed, but detectives say their plan to kill her was interrupted.

A detective claimed that Robert Bever said he was planning on cutting off his 2-year-old sister's head with an axe. In addition, the detective testified that Robert Bever told him that he first started planning the murders of his family when he was 13-years-old.

Robert saved money to purchase weapons online. After killing everyone in the home, they planned to store their dead family members in bins. They also wanted to make a video for law enforcement and one for YouTube. After that, they planned to steal their parents car to drive to populated places and kill five people wherever they stopped.

The brothers are charged with five counts of first-degree murder and one count of assault and battery with intent to kill.
