Police: 5 family members stabbed to death in Oklahoma

Posted:

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) --    Police in Oklahoma say five members of a family were found stabbed to death in their Tulsa-area home and that two teenage relatives are in custody.


   Broken Arrow police Sgt. Thomas Cooper says police were called to a home late Wednesday and found five people dead from stab wounds. A girl survived with wounds, and another child in the home was not harmed.


   Cooper said at the scene Thursday that the suspects are boys aged 16 and 18.


   He says they fled the home before police arrived but that a tracking dog trailed them. He says the victims and the detained teenagers are related.


   Cooper also says Broken Arrow typically only sees one or two homicides every couple of years.
