Fairmont Terrace: Judge Orders Poore Brothers to Stand Trial

Posted: Updated:

A judge in Tulsa says two brothers accused in a quadruple killing earlier this year should stand trial on first-degree murder charges.
 
James Poore and Cedric Poore were bound over for trial Friday on the seventh day of their preliminary hearing. The brothers are charged with first-degree murder in the January shooting deaths of four women at the Fairmont Terrace apartment complex.

The state rested its case Friday morning in the preliminary hearing for James Poore and Cedric Poore. A judge then closed the courtroom to the public to consider motions from defense attorneys, who want to call their own witnesses to defend their side of the case.

Police say the Poore brothers robbed and shot the women for fear they'd identify them. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges and are being represented by separate attorneys.

Friday marks the seventh day of testimony in the preliminary hearing, which started in July and had to be reset to this week due to scheduling conflicts.
