DUNCAN, OK (KSWO)- Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks summed up an emotional day at the Stephens County Courthouse where Alan Hruby was sentenced to three life terms.

"Emotional toll on all of us no doubt about it, I know if it wasn't them Tinker and John would be sitting in this crowd asking the same questions I knew them a long time, they were good folks, they are missed, it's been tough for everyone," said Hicks.

In October of 2014, Hruby was only 19 when he ambushed his family at their Duncan home--shooting and killing them all. Investigators believe the murder rampage was fueled by financial gain and greed.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks said Thursday’s decision gives needed finality to the case.

"Basically, this locks this down to the point that he’s going to prison and no one is going to hear from him again," said Hicks.

As part of his plea deal he struck with the state Hruby waived his right to appeal, was ordered to have no contact with the victims’ family unless they contact him first, and under no circumstances is he allowed to grant an interview regarding the case. Hicks says he wanted to make sure Alan did not profit from a possible book or movie deal.

He says the family has been tortured enough--and remain disturbed by Alan's lack of remorse.

"You take the life of three people and you don't apologize, I think it reflects on the kind of person he really is," said Hicks.
