Oklahoma park dedicated at former home of murdered family
Five people were killed at the site in 2015
Broken Arrow, Okla. — Community leaders in the northeastern Oklahoma community of Broken Arrow have dedicated a memorial park on the former site of a home where five members of a family were killed by other family members.
A ceremony was held Wednesday to dedicate Reflection Park on the former site of the Bever family’s home.
Authorities say two brothers, 22-year-old Robert Bever and 20-year-old Michael Bever , fatally stabbed their parents, two brothers and a sister in 2015 as part of a plot to carry out mass killings across the country. Robert Bever pleaded guilty in 2016 and Michael Bever was convicted in the deaths last year. Both are serving life sentences .
The house was demolished following a 2017 fire and purchased for a park.
