TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A preliminary hearing has resumed for two brothers accused of tying up and fatally shooting four women in a Tulsa apartment.

During Tuesday morning's proceedings, a friend of James Poore and Cedric Poore testified that he overheard one of the brothers talking about planning a robbery on Jan. 7. On that same day, authorities discovered the bodies of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Authorities believe the brothers robbed the women at a rundown apartment complex, then killed them because out of fear the women could identify them to police.

Both brothers have pleaded not guilty.

In testimony Monday, the 19-year-old niece of James Poore said he confided to her that he'd committed the crime.
