Hruby pleads not guilty to killing his family

DUNCAN, Okla._Alan Hurby, the Duncan man charged with killing his family, has entered a plea of not guilty.

Alan Hruby, 20, confessed to killing his parents, John and Tinker Hruby, and his sister, Katherine, on October 14, 2014. He was officially charged with three count of first-degree murder the next day. He is currently serving three years in prison for stealing his grandmother's credit card last year.

District Attorney Jason Hicks says Hruby confessed he was a big spender and his motive was financial. Hruby had reportedly gotten involved with a loan shark and owed $3,000.

After dumping the videos for the home's surveillance system and the stolen 9mm gun from his father into a lake, Hruby went back to the OU campus to pick up his cell phone. He left the phone in his dorm room on purpose so any pings on the phone would trace Alan back to Norman. He then traveled to Dallas where he attended the OU/Texas football game with friends. His Instagram page even showed a post from that trip, where he and his friends stayed at the Ritz-Carlton.

Hruby's trial date is set for April.
