DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) –Alan Hruby, the man charged with killing his family in their Duncan home in October 2014, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Hruby confessed to killing his parents, John and Tinker Hruby, and his sister, Katherine Hruby, to Duncan police October 14, 2014, a day after they were found dead. Alan Hruby told police he walked through the back door of his parents' home, into the kitchen and shot and killed his mother and sister. One hour later, he shot and killed his father. All three of them were shot in the head.

District Attorney Jason Hicks said Alan Hruby confessed to being a big spender and owed $3,000 to a loan shark.

After dumping the surveillance videos and his father’s 9mm into a lake, Hruby went back to the OU campus to pick up his cell phone. He left the phone in his dorm on purpose so any pings on the phone would trace him back to Norman. He then traveled to Dallas where he attended the OU/Texas football game with friends.

Thursday, March 10, 2016, Hruby was given the opportunity to take a plea deal that would require him to serve three consecutive life sentences. Hruby pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree murder. He’ll serve three consecutive life sentences without parole. The sentence length was reached at the request of other family members.

Prosecutors were pushing for a death sentence.

“He will never be out of prison again,” District Attorney Jason Hicks said during a press conference following the guilty plea.

As part of the plea, Alan Hruby was ordered to not have any contact with the media or family. Hicks said this is to help give the family closure and prevent him from signing a book or movie deal. Family can, however, initiate contact with him.

Hruby should be housed in general population at the McAlester State Penitentiary.
