Prosecutors To Seek Death Penalty In Duncan Killings

Alan Hruby
Stephens County Jail

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against a 20-year-old man who was bound for trial in the killing of his newspaper publisher father, his mother and his sister.

A Stephens County judge on Tuesday determined there was enough evidence for a trial for Alan Hruby, who is accused of first-degree murder in the Oct. 9 shooting deaths.

The Oklahoman reported Hruby showed no emotion as his defense attorney accepted the death penalty notification.

Prosecutors allege Hruby was a shopaholic who killed his family after his parents cut off his finances after he took out a credit card in his grandmother's name and charged thousands of dollars on it.

A gag order has been issued in the case that prohibits attorneys from discussing the case.
