Hearing For Murder Suspects Resumes

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A preliminary hearing is scheduled to resume for two brothers accused of shooting four women to death in Tulsa.

Cedric and James Poore are due in Tulsa district court Monday morning.

Both brothers have pleaded not guilty to killing 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson. The four were found tied up and shot in the head in January.

Authorities believe the brothers robbed the women at a rundown apartment complex, then killed them because they feared they would be identified. Defense attorneys for both men claim the evidence gathered in the case points to other suspects.

Testimony in the case began in mid-July but was reset for Monday due to several scheduling conflicts among the judge and attorneys.
