During the seventh day of testimony in the preliminary hearing for two brothers accused of killing four women, the state called several detectives to the stand.
Detectives with the Tulsa Police Department testified they served a search warrant to the Poore brothers' mother's house on Feb. 6. Inside, they said they found several pieces of key evidence.
Detective Mike Zenoni told the court that during the search of Erma Poore's home, the officers towed a minivan from the house.
The defense asked why the detectives seized the van, and then asked the judge to suppress the contents of the search warrant.
The state then called Detective Rob Hickey. He assisted with the search of the home and testified that he and other officers found mail with Cedric Poore's name on it inside the house.
During a search of the back yard, they found 10 shell casings on the ground. Detectives also discovered a black mask hidden inside a vase in the home.
The state is hoping to link a party the brothers had at the house on New Year's Eve, where they were firing guns in the back yard, to the murder of the four women.
The defense continued to object to the witness testimony and continued its motion to suppress all testimony relating to the evidence found inside the house.
Around 3 p.m. the state temporarily rested its case.
The judge still has to make a ruling regarding the defense request to suppress Thursday's testimony.
He will decide Friday when court begins again at 9 a.m.
