TULSA — Tulsa prosecutors have resumed putting on evidence in their case against two brothers accused of robbing four women, then shooting them to death, last January.

Prosecutors called Tulsa investigators to the stand Thursday for testimony about the scene where the four were found dead.

James Poore and Cedric Poore are charged with first-degree murder and both have pleaded not guilty. In testimony Wednesday, a witness said both brothers had admitted their roles in the crimes.

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 because they recognized him.

Defense lawyers have said police arrested the wrong men.

Testimony began Monday in the preliminary hearing to determine whether there's enough evidence against the pair.
