TULSA, Okla. (AP) - 1 of 2 brothers accused in the shooting deaths of 4 women at a crime-plagued Tulsa apartment complex has pleaded not guilty to murder.

Special Judge Charles Hogshead entered the plea Friday on behalf of 39-year-old Cedric Poore and set his preliminary hearing for April 2, when his 32-year-old brother James Poore will appear in court.

The brothers are accused in the Jan. 7 shootings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Police say they lived in the same apartment complex as their four victims, who were discovered bound and shot in the head.

A 3-year-old boy was found unharmed in the apartment and taken into protective custody.

Police believe the women were killed because the Poores feared they could identify them.
