TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A preliminary hearing set for two brothers charged in the January shooting deaths of four women at a crime-plagued Tulsa apartment complex has been delayed.

Preliminary hearings for Cedric and James Poore were scheduled in Tulsa County District Court Tuesday morning. James Poore's hearing was regarding a robbery case, that hearing will now be on May 17th.

Caleb Poore's hearing is now set for May 23rd.

The two are charged in the killings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson. They've pleaded not guilty.

Court records show both men have prior felony convictions for robbery. Prosecutors have yet to decide whether they will seek the death penalty.

Police say the Poores were staying in the same apartment complex as the four victims, who were found bound and shot in the head.

Authorities believe the brothers robbed the women, then killed them because they feared they would be identified.

Yea :-) Death penalty :-) Do it :-) they need it :-) Hang em on a gallows side by side with the good Friday murderers. All at once. That'd be a beautiful execution.

I wish this countries court system would get an overhaul. Let's take months to decide what to do and years to go to court. None of this should take this long.
