A Sapulpa man charged with the murder of his five-year old son during a 17 hour standoff with Tulsa police in 2015 wants to pursue an insanity defense. 

In March 2015, Bryon Creech, 38, surrendered outside of his estranged wife's apartment on Riverside Drive.  Inside the apartment, officers found Creech's son Braden dead.

In motions filed with the court, Creech also wants to fire his lawyer and represent himself.  In his motion seeking an insanity defense, Creech says he wants the court to allow him to use State funds to consult with his own psychological expert for an evaluation to determine whether he was "legally sane at the time of the alleged offense."
