Murder Charges Filed In Tulsa Quadruple Slayings

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed first-degree murder charges against two brothers accused of shooting four women to death at a run-down Tulsa apartment complex in January.

Cedric Poore and his brother, James Poore, were charged Thursday with four counts of first-degree murder and four additional counts of robbery with a firearm.

The brothers are charged in the deaths of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

The January slayings, which investigators believe happened during the day, have raised concerns about whether residents in the south Tulsa neighborhood have been afraid to call in crime tips.

Jail records indicate both men are due to be arraigned in district court on Friday.

Prosecutors said they haven't decided yet whether they'll seek the death penalty.
