TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa prosecutors are hoping to finish presenting their case against two brothers accused of robbing then shooting four women to death in January.

James Poore and Cedric Poore are due back in Tula district court on Thursday.

Both have pleaded not guilty and are being represented by separate attorneys.

In testimony Wednesday, a witness said the both brothers admitted their roles in the robbing and shootings of the women.

Seventeen-year-old Logan Ahmed testified that James Poore told him and several others that he and his brother, Cedric, had to shoot the four — who lived in the same apartment complex — because they recognized him.
