    OK - Braydon Creech, 5, shot by dad during 16-hour Tulsa standoff, 19 March 2015



    http://www.krmg.com/news/news/local/...ulsa-bo/nkcsM/

    Lead homicide detective Sgt. Dave Walker tells KRMG it all began when the suspect, Bryon Creech, broke into his estranged wife's apartment near 71st and Riverside.

    Creech had his son, Braydon, with him and after breaking in, the mother saw what was happening on a video surveillance system she was able to access via the Internet. Walker didn't go into detail, but other sources indicate Creech was barricading himself and the boy inside the apartment. That alarmed the mother, who called police...

    Creech did have visitation rights with the boy. It was supposed to be at 6:45 p.m. each day, at a facility called "Visit Solution," but clearly on that Friday Creech had unsupervised custody of the boy well before that hour.

    A man who is accused of killing his 5-year-old son while engaged in a standoff with Tulsa police had violated a protective order multiple times after his wife filed for divorce last year, police said Friday.

    When Sand Springs police served Bryon Creech with a protective order last July, after Creech’s wife said the 6-foot-6-inch tall, 330-pound former Marine had threatened her with a gun, they seized his weapons. “The protective order we served — there was an order from the judge to confiscate any weapons present,” Deputy Police Chief Mike Carter said Friday. “We confiscated several guns, a Taser, some expandable batons and knives. We still have custody of those.”

    On Friday, Creech was arrested in Tulsa following a 16-hour standoff in which he is accused of firing multiple shots at police and, at some point, shooting his 5-year-old son, Braydon.

    Tulsa police are seeking the origin of the gun they believe was used to kill 5-year-old Braydon Creech during a protracted standoff in south Tulsa last week... It will be “at least a week” before Tulsa police know where the gun used to shoot Braydon came from, Sgt. Dave Walker said.

    Amy Elliot, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office, said Braydon was shot twice, once in the head and once in the chest...

    Kaci Campbell, a teacher at Sand Springs Early Childhood Center where Braydon attended during the 2013-14 school year, said he was an “adorable child” who was “very bright and eager to learn new things.” “He loved school and his friends, and they loved him,” Campbell said. “Braydon told me on numerous occasions that he wanted to be a police officer when he grew up..."

    It saddens me greatly that these innocent, young children are having to learn loss and grief at this stage in life. Thoughts are with Brayden's mom and family. And his classmates...

    Bryon Creech set for trial June 13 in death of his 5-year-old son

    A Sapulpa man accused of murdering his 5-year-old son during a police standoff is set for trial June 13.

    (...)

    Creech, 37, is charged with first-degree murder in the March 19 death of his son, Braydon. Creech also faces counts of shooting with intent to kill, kidnapping, child abuse, child neglect, second-degree burglary and violation of a protective order.

    Drummond on Tuesday also accepted a Feb. 8 motion filed by Creech as a notice of intent to use an insanity defense.

    Creech's motion was filed pro se, or on his own behalf, and states that he "has no memory of committing the acts leading to the death of his only son."

    Such a beautiful little boy, such a useless father he had. Words cannot express the feeling I feel about this man.

    A Sapulpa man accused of fatally shooting his 5-year-old son during a police standoff has notified a Tulsa County judge that he wants to represent himself, claiming his appointed counsel has refused to pursue an insanity defense, court records show.

    Bryon Keith Creech claims that his public defender has demonstrated “personal animosity” toward him and “sabotaged” his efforts to pursue a defense that he was insane at the time of the alleged offense, according to a motion Creech filed May 26.

    District Judge Doug Drummond took the motion under advisement Friday, court minutes show, after telling Creech of the dangers of self-representation and the range of punishment he will face if convicted — up to life without parole. The hearing was passed to June 16.

    Sapulpa man pleads guilty in fatal shooting of his 5-year-old son during police standoff - August

    http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/court...ff8fbffe9.html

    A Sapulpa man charged in the shooting death of his 5-year-old son entered a blind guilty plea Thursday and could spend the rest of his life in prison.

    Bryon Keith Creech, 38, was charged with first-degree murder in the March 19, 2015, death of Braydon Creech. He pleaded guilty to that charge as well as to charges of shooting with intent to kill, kidnapping, child abuse, child neglect, second-degree burglary and violation of a protective order.

    Creech didn’t show much emotion in court as he confirmed that he is guilty of the seven criminal counts, three of which carry up to life sentences and one of which — the murder count — could put him in prison for the rest of his life without the option of parole.

    In a statement on his guilty plea form that the judge read aloud in court, Creech admitted that he killed his son while holding him against his will and despite orders from police to surrender the child. He also admitted that he had tied his son with zip-ties and failed to obtain medical treatment for him.
    Bryon Creech sentenced to life without parole for fatally shooting 5-year-old son during standoff - October

    http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/court...5655ea35c.html

    A Sapulpa man who repeatedly harassed his ex-wife in the months leading up to a 17-hour standoff with police at her Tulsa apartment, wherein he fatally shot his 5-year-old son, was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole.

    In her tear-filled victim impact statement, Laurel Creech faced Drummond and urged him to sentence her ex-husband to life without parole.

    She said that the day her son was killed, “the world as I knew it came to an end.” She went on to describe how Bryon Creech took away her son’s smile, along with his future and the memories she could have made with him.
    In addition to life without parole for murder, Creech was sentenced to a combined 86 years in prison for his other charges. Those sentences will run concurrently.“We’re very pleased,” McAmis said. “This defendant was so cold and so calculating. He has never shown any remorse. He is a horrible human being who has only cared about himself, and he cannot ever get out of prison again, and that’s what we’re very happy about.”Creech has been held in Tulsa Jail without bond since his arrest. He will remain there until he is turned over into Department of Corrections custody pending a possible appeal.
