OK teen accused of killing family over prospective inheritance

DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged the son of a rural newspaper publisher with killing his father, mother and sister.

Records show 19-year-old Alan Hruby is in custody in the shooting deaths of his father, John Hruby, mother Tinker Hruby and sister Katherine. Alan Hruby does not yet have an attorney.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks said Wednesday that Hruby killed his family hoping to inherit money. Hicks says Hruby was having financial problems and was being pursued by a local loan shark. Hruby is a student at the University of Oklahoma.

John Hruby was the publisher of The Marlow Review, a weekly newspaper with a circulation of about 3,500. His wife also worked at the paper.
