TULSA - A Bank of Oklahoma account has been established for the surviving girls of the slain Broken Arrow family.
The two girls, ages two and 13, lost their parents, David and April Bever, and three of their siblings on July 22, 2015. Both girls are now in a foster home.
The BOK account has been set up for the girls' sole benefit by their court-appointed Tulsa Lawyers for Children attorneys.
According to Chad McLain, attorney working on the Bever case, the accounts were set up after Broken Arrow police and other law enforcement agencies received calls from concerned citizens wanting to donate money for the surviving children.
McLain says the account was set up by court-appointed guardian, who is an attorney, and will be controlled through the court system. He went on to say that there are no plans for how the money will be used and that it won’t be touched anytime soon unless there’s some sort of extraordinary expense.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to the children can contact any branch of the Bank of Oklahoma.
Robert Bever, 18, and Michael Bever, 16, face five counts of first-degree murder in the stabbing death of their parents and three siblings. Both are being charged as adults.
