The Tulsa World  reports that attorneys for 19-year-old Robert Bever filed several motions including one for dismissal of charges.

Robert Bever and his 17-year-old brother, Michael Bever, have been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the July stabbing of their parents, David and April Bever, their 12- and 7-year-old brothers Daniel and Christopher, and 5-year-old sister Victoria.

The brothers have also been charged with one count of assault and battery with intent to kill in the stabbing of their 13-year-old sister.
