DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - A Duncan city attorney has declined to release some documents regarding previous police contact with the man suspected of killing his parents and sister, saying he was a juvenile at the time of the police contact.

“There are several documents that deal with non-traffic related matters that I am unable to turn over to you that deal with matters as to Alan Hruby before he reached the age of 18,” Assistant City Attorney Lawrence M. Wheeler said in an email to The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1ruI8HQ ).

Hruby, 19, is charged with first-degree murder in the Oct. 9 shooting death of his father, The Marlow Review publisher John Hruby, 50; mother, “Tinker” Hruby, 48; and 17-year-old sister Katherine Hruby inside their Duncan home.

Hruby is being held without bond. His court-appointed attorney did not return phone calls seeking comment Sunday and the judge in the case has issued a gag order that prohibits attorneys and others involved in the case from discussing it publicly.

An affidavit filed said police were called to the Hruby home in December 2012 because of reports Alan Hruby, who was 17 at the time, had choked his mother.

Wheeler released traffic records showing Hruby gave a false name to a police officer during a traffic stop in April 2010. He was charged with obstructing an officer, speeding and having no driver’s license.

Hruby gave the same false name when he was stopped for speeding at 1:08 a.m. Oct. 9 in Duncan about a mile from his home on what prosecutors have said was a trip to steal his father’s gun, which is believed to have been used in the slayings.

This time, he was given a ticket and released, authorities said. Police allege he returned to Duncan hours later to shoot his parents and sister.

Investigators have said Hruby killed his parents because they had recently cut him off financially, and killed his sister in order to become the only heir to the family estate.
