Judge: Man must face charges in sons' deaths

Everett Conant III is accused of killing his three sons and brother last summer.

A judge on Monday ordered a Wheatland man to answer charges that he killed his three sons and his brother.

Circuit Judge Randal Arp ruled that the state's case against 36-year-old Everett Conant III is strong enough that he must face the four murder charges in district court.

Prosecutors accuse Conant of shooting and killing his sons - ages 11, 13 and 18 - and his 33-year-old brother in July. He's also charged with attempted murder in the wounding of his wife.
