TULSA, Okla. - The following are updates from the trial of Michael Bever. The most recent developments are at the top:
On Thursday, April 26, the judge ruled that jurors will not see more than 100 photos from the medical examiners' autopsy of the victims. The judge said the photos would simply "inflame" the jury. However, the jury will see nearly 200 images from the scene of the Bever family home.
FOX23 Tiffany Alaniz says the family can be seen in many of the images.
The crime scene detective who processed the scene took the stand Thursday; that detective will likely testify the entire day.
Wednesday - Nurse, investigator testify
On Wednesday, April 25, the nurse who treated the surviving Bever sister took the stand. An investigator who took Robert and Michael Bever to the hospital after being apprehended also testified.
The nurse told the court that the sister wrote notes asking about her family as soon as she woke up from surgery. She had a breathing tube in her neck and could not speak.
The investigator recalled hearing Michael say, "I guess I got a little bit crazy and my family is dead."
The judge also made a ruling about how any pictures the jurors can see during the trial. The decision was not made available to us.
Crime scene investigators are expected to testify Wednesday afternoon. FOX23 will update this story as we learn more from the courtroom.
