One person testified on Monday in the preliminary hearing for Cedric and James Poore.

The brothers are accused of shooting and killing four women at the Terrace Park Apartments near 61st and Peoria.

FOX23's Janna Clark was in the courtroom for much of the testimony. The witness was called by the state. She said she was James Poore's girlfriend and roommate at the time of the murders.

She told the court she has an agreement with the state that if she testifies truthfully she won't get prosecuted.

In cross examination, the witness answered many of the questions with "I don't know, I'm not sure and I don't remember."

At one point, a defense attorney asked if she has memory problems. She said she sometimes did.

Earlier Monday morning when questioned by prosecutors, the witness testified she'd been in one of the victim's apartments and saw drugs and money, and then told James Poore about it.

She said his brother Cedric showed up. She said the Poore brothers left and came back in 20 minutes with drugs, money and the victims' jewelry. She said Cedric had a gun on his hip.

FOX23 asked defense and state's attorneys how they think the hearing is going. They said they don't want to talk about until it's over.

The preliminary hearing is expected to continue tomorrow morning.

She really needs to go to prison with the Poore brothers. She sent them over to rob the apartment.
