TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A judge in Tulsa says two brothers accused in a quadruple killing earlier this year should stand trial on first-degree murder charges.

James Poore and Cedric Poore were bound over for trial Friday on the seventh day of their preliminary hearing. The brothers are charged with first-degree murder in the January shooting deaths of four women at the Fairmont Terrace apartment complex.

Prosecutors alleged that the Poore brothers robbed the apartment, then shot the women so they wouldn't identify them.
