Judge Orders Hruby to Stand Trial for Family's Deaths

Duncan, Oklahoma - The man charged with killing his family in Duncan last October appeared in court Tuesday.

Alan Hruby is accused of killing his mother, father and sister at their home before heading to Dallas to watch the OU-Texas game.

The prosecution and defense brought five witnesses to the stand. The first witness was the family's house keeper. Witnesses were asked to identify if they recognized anything belonging to the Hruby's from photos taken at the scene.

The family's house keeper described the day of October 13 like any other day. She said nothing seemed out of place or unusual except that all the cabinet doors in the laundry room had been opened. She went about her daily routine and was in the home for 30 minutes until she first found the body of Tinker Hruby. She then noticed John and Katherine Hruby's bodies nearby and called 911.

Investigators said a 9 mm hand gun and a glove was found in a storage unit that linked to Alan Hruby.

Just after 2:30 p.m., the judge decided there was enough evidence for a trial and set Alan Hruby's formal arraignment for August 20.
