The Two Oklahoma brothers, accused of stabbing to death their parents and three siblings  at their Broken Arrow residence  in July may have set up cameras and captured the horrific attack on video, authorities said.

Videos made by Robert Bever, 18, and Michael Bever, 16, that were from inside the home two years ago have surfaced.

A search warrant obtained by the Tulsa World, revealed that police discovered video cameras next to the bodies of three of the victims and appeared connected to one or more of the computers taken from the home.

“Live footage recordings” from the cameras were found on a thumb drive taken from the house, as well as audio recordings and photographs, the newspaper reported.

Investigators are now reviewing all of the data. It’s unclear what was recorded on the equipment.

One of the suspects can be heard talking about plans for a “mass homicide”  on a thumb drive inside one of the bedrooms of the home, the newspaper reported. The plans were also discussed in a police interview, authorities said.

Both brothers have pleaded not guilty to five counts of first-degree murder and a single count of assault and battery with intent to kill.

The brothers also allegedly stabbed their 13-year-old sister, but she survived her injuries. A 2-year-old sister was in the house but not harmed.

Both suspects used various equipment in the past for a series of videos that Robert Bever posted on YouTube in February and March 2013 under the user name ColtEmpireOfficial, the newspaper reported.

The videos included a skit featuring Robert hitting his annoyed brother in the back of his head while he was on the computer and an edited video that shows Steve Martin doing the “Harlem Shake” from the Pink Panther movie.

The then-16 year-old also has videos of himself video-blogging, or vlogging, about music, virtual computer game Minecraft and computer software.

The deadly incident occurred at the family’s home July 22. Police found the bodies of family members David Bever, 52; April Bever, 41; Daniel Bever, 12; Christopher Bever, 7; and Victoria Bever, 5.

The brothers were arrested an hour after officers arrived. They were found hiding in woods behind the property.

They will appear next in court Oct. 9.
