TULSA, Oklahoma -

A judge delayed the preliminary hearing for two Broken Arrow brothers accused of killing their parents and three siblings. Attorneys presented arguments to the judge about why the defense believes 16-year-old Michael Bever should not be tried as an adult.

Michael Bever and 18-year-old Robert Bever are charged with first-degree murder in the July deaths of their family at their Broken Arrow home.
