TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A judge is expected to set a trial date for two brothers accused of robbing and fatally shooting four women in January.

Cedric Poore and James Poore are due to appear in court Monday in Tulsa for the hearing.

They are accused in the killings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Prosecutors say the brothers robbed the women and then shot them out of fear of being recognized.

The brothers have each pleaded not guilty to the first-degree killings and are being represented by separate attorneys.

Prosecutors have yet to decide whether they’ll seek the death penalty in the case.
