TULSA (AP) — Attorneys for one of two brothers charged in the shooting deaths of four women last year want evidence obtained through a search warrant tossed because they say an affidavit supporting it was too general and short on specifics.

The document was one of several filed Monday in district court on behalf of Cedric Poore, who with his brother, James Poore, is charged in the deaths of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Prosecutors allege the brothers robbed the women, then shot them out of fear of being recognized.

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

The January 2013 shootings happened in midday in a troubled part of south Tulsa that has been plagued by blight and crime.
