Court Appearance Reset for Brothers Accused in Fairmont Murders

Cedric Poore

Arraignment for the Poore brothers arrested in the January shooting deaths of 4 women at a Tulsa apartment complex was reset Tuesday morning.

Court and jail records indicate the new arraignment for the pair will be Friday.

Brothers Cedric Poore, 39, and James Poore, 32, have been held in the Tulsa jail since their arrests earlier this month.

The Poores are suspected in the deaths of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

According to the booking report, investigators spoke with several witnesses detailing what the two brothers told them about the murders.

Witnesses told investigators that Cedric was armed with a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol and that they were "going to pull a "lick" (robbery) at the victim's apartment."

Investigators were also told that they saw drugs, money and jewelry that was taken from the robbery at the victim's apartment.

The killings prompted city leaders to hastily assemble a public safety group to explore how to better combat crime in the area.
