DA Will Not Seek Death Penalty In 4 Fairmont Terrace Murders

The Tulsa County District Attorney will not seek the death penalty against two men charged with murdering four women at a south Tulsa Apartment Complex in January 2013.

Cedric Poore and James Poore were charged with four counts of First Degree Murder on February 21, 2013.

"We will not seek the death penalty," said Tulsa County First Assistant District Attorney Doug Drummond.

"The crimes are tragic and it has emotionally impacted each of the families who lost loved ones. But, at the end of the day, we must objectively consider a wide variety of factors, including the admissible evidence as well as the legal issues involved. After doing that objective analysis, we are declining to file a bill of particulars, seeking the death penalty."
