One of the brothers accused in the quadruple murder was also accused of taking part in a riot while previously serving time in prison.

That riot in the Cushing prison in 2005 left one inmate dead and his sister says she didn’t get justice then and wants it now.

Brothers Cedric and James Poore are charged in the murder of four women at Fairmont Terrace on January, 7th near 61st and Peoria. Both served time in prison.

Cedric Poore was also implicated in the deadly riot, but was released early from prison in 2011.

"It makes me sick had he not been held accountable for the involvement or whatever part he had in it. These other four women could still be alive,” said Alicia Lippert.

On Thursday, when Alicia Lippert watched the FOX23 News report about Cedric Poore’s criminal history and his alleged involvement in the 2005 deadly riot in Cushing she knew the riot was the one that killed her brother Adam Lippert.

Prison records show Lippert went to prison for drugs and he had one more year to serve until he was beaten, punched and stabbed to death in a prison riot.

Inmate Cedric Poore was one of the men accused of beating him with a bat.

Charges were dropped and Poore was let out of prison early. Records show the riot charge was dropped because the material witness could not be located.

Now, Cedric Poore is accused of killing four women.

“How many murders do you get to commit before you are held accountable for them?" said Lippert.

She knows her brother wasn’t a saint, he was a self-proclaimed white supremacist and he didn’t ink himself with white pride tattoos until he got into prison.

"He never went out and murdered anyone he never did anything of that nature," said Lippert.

However, her brother is gone and one of the accused killers is back in jail awaiting murder charges for the Fairmont Terrace murders.

The director for the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board says Cedric Poore was released early because he had a clean record after the riot.

The Poore brothers are being held without bond. They have not been formally charged.

Arrest reports state James Poore told witnesses he killed one of the twin sisters and his brother killed the three other women.

The report shows the murders were motivated by robbery.
