TULSA — A judge has delayed the arraignment for two brothers accused of robbing and fatally shooting four women in January.

District Judge William Kellough postponed setting a trial date for Cedric Poore and James Poore until Jan. 21. The hearing had been set for Monday.

The brothers are accused in the killings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Prosecutors say the brothers robbed the women and then shot them out of fear of being recognized.

The brothers have each pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and are being represented by separate attorneys.

Prosecutors have yet to decide whether they'll seek the death penalty in the case.
