DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) - A major development is expected in a local murder trial.
Alan Hruby, who's accused of shooting his father, mother, and sister to death in their home in Duncan a little more than a year ago, is scheduled to appear before the judge Thursday afternoon.
Hruby was arrested shortly after the killings. According to information released the court at that time, Hruby confessed that his motive was financial. He told investigators he was afraid he was going to be cut off, and by murdering them, he would be the only heir to the estate. Hruby later hid the murder weapon, and surveillance equipment from his home, in a storage unit belonging to his family. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
