OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A preliminary hearing is scheduled to resume for a man charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of a prostitute featured on HBO's "Cathouse" series and three other people.

Denny Edward Phillips is charged in the death of 22-year-old Brooke Phillips, who had worked for a legal Nevada brothel featured on HBO. She was not related to Denny Phillips. The other victims were 22-year-old Milagros Barrera, 25-year-old Jennifer Ermey and 32-year-old Casey Mark Barrientos.

Phillips faces six counts of murder because Brooke Phillips and Barrera were pregnant when they were killed.

Phillips' preliminary hearing resumes Tuesday. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Last year, David Allen Tyner pleaded guilty to six counts of first-degree murder in the case and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
