TULSA -- Monday, a hearing for Michael Bever is set to begin, marking the final hearing before his trial begins.

His trial date was moved back to August 28 on Monday after originally being scheduled for June.

Prosecutors say Michael and Robert Bever both killed their parents and three siblings at their Broken Arrow Home.

Monday, Michael Bever appeared in court wearing a black and white striped uniform after being separated from other inmates.

Michael’s attorney, Bob Nigh said he plans to seek an insanity defense for the younger of the two brothers.

Michael was 16-years-old when he was charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

The fatal stabbings all took place inside the Broken Arrow home on July 22, 2015. Last September, Robert Bever pled guilty to the five deaths and is currently serving a life sentence.
