A man accused of killing his fiancé and two girls in Weleetka wants the cases to be tried together.

Kevin Sweat’s attorney announced on Thursday he plans to file to have the cases combined. Sweat’s trial for the death of Ashley Taylor is scheduled to begin in June. The trial has been moved to Okmulgee County.

Sweat is also charged with the murders of 11-year old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year old Taylor Pascal-Placker in 2008.
