An emotional day in court for witnesses and family of the women gunned down in January's quadruple homicide.
Twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, both 23, Misty Nunley, 33, and Julie Jackson, 55, were tied up and shot in the head at a South Tulsa apartment complex.
A month later, brothers Cedric Poore 39, and James Poore, 32, were charge in the slayings.
The preliminary hearing is for the judge to decide if there is enough evidence for a murder trial.
Since the killings, the community has changed.
"My family and me wanted me to move and everyone who cared about me," said Fairmont Terrace resident Deandrea Tennyson.
Four families are torn apart and struggling with the painful testimony of why the twins and their friends were gunned down.
In Monday's hearing, witnesses sobbed on the stand, and in the back of the courtroom the victim's victims' families wiped away tears.
Police believe one of the twins was a target who was robbed for drugs.
Cedric Poore's wife, Casey Poore, testified against her brother-in-law, James Poore. She told the judge her husband told her the day of the killings, his brother was a part of it.
When Casey Poore testified about her conversation she had with James Poore a few weeks after the killings, she sobbed. She said James told her, “I need to burn my thermal shirt because it has brain matter on it.”
She didn't tell police about the conversation with James Poore because she was scared and didn't want to be labeled a snitch.
She said she asked her brother-in-law why he told her and said, “Sis, I told you so you know what I am capable of.”
Earlier in the day Cedric Poore's 19-year-old daughter took the stand and said her uncle told her he committed the killings and something went wrong.
The neighbor who found the women testified she will never forget that image and she was reminded on the stand as she testified against the Poore brothers.
The prosecutor showed Laura Moore a picture of the dead women and she sobbed uncontrollably, "Get it away, I know it well."
In the back of the courtroom, the family of Julie Jackson and the twins put their faces in their hands and quietly cried.
Jackson's family is wearing purple ribbons and a button with her picture.
The neighbor testified that Rebeika called her that morning and asked Moore to check on her. Moore said on her way to the apartment she thought she heard Rebeika yell, and she found Rebeika's 3-year-old son outside the apartment.
She said he took her hand and waved at her and pointed to the floor where his mother had been killed. That's when Moore called 911.
She said she ran out screaming, "They're all dead, they're all dead,” and called 911.
Six months later families who were there at Fairmont Terrace when the killings happened say they fell much safer today.
“I think everything is a lot quieter around here and security, doing what they should be doing in the first place," said Tennyson.
Court records show there were five people in James Poore's apartment in Fairmont Terrace where the woman lived.
Records show they plan to call the five witnesses during the preliminary hearing.
Testimony continues Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.
