TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A February 19th arraignment date is set for two Tulsa brothers arrested in the shooting deaths of four women at a Tulsa apartment complex.

Thirty-nine-year-old Cedric Poore and 32-year-old James Poore made a brief court appearance by video Thursday.

Formal charges have not been filed in the case and no pleas were entered.

The prosecutor's office says police reports on the case are expected in a week or two.

The Poore's were arrested Wednesday in connection with the shooting deaths of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Police Chuck Jordan says the Poores lived in the same apartment complex as the victims but that he couldn't release information about motive or details of the crime.
