The man who police arrested Thursday night for alledgedly shooting his three sons, his brother, and wounding his wife, has been charged with four counts of first degree murder, one count of attempted first degree murder, one count of aggravated battery and one count of possession of a deadly weapon with intent to cause bodily injury.

This was his preliminary hearing on Friday afternoon. 36-yr-old, Everett Conant, was taken into custody Thursday evening after a ten minute stand off with police. According to Wheatlands Chief of Police, Randy Chesser, around 5:50 Thursday night officers received a 911 call from a panicked neighbor who reported that shots had been fired. Platte County Sheriff’s Deputies, on arrival, reported hearing a single gun shot and saw a female running down the street. The female was identified as the wife of the assailant and she had been shot in her leg and shoulder. She was in stable condition Thursday night at a hospital.

According to the Chief of Police, officers waited for more deputies to arrive and then they attempted to enter the trailer home. Upon entering they heard a male voice and then retreated. A ten minute stand off followed and then Conant surrendered without incident.

Inside the trailer deputies found Conants three fatally wounded children who’s ages are being reported as 11, 13, and 18. They also found one adult male, reportedly the brother of the accused. He was still alive at the time and then transported to a hospital where he died around 6:30 that night approximately forty minutes after the police arrived. According to police the brother was only there visiting for the afternoon.

Police say that they do not think this was a hostage situation and that Conant did not have a criminal record. The family is believed to have been living in Wheatland for seven years. Police are not sure of the motive at this time and the investigation is still ongoing. Conant appeared in court shackled and in a prison jumpsuit on Friday. He was stone faced and soft spoken. He will remain in jail without bond.
