Judge OKs stay in hearing over 4 Tulsa deaths
May 24, 2013 23:06 GMT
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A judge has approved a five-day stay in the preliminary hearing of two brothers charged with killing four women in Tulsa.
The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/10u9DoC ) Presiding Judge William Kellough approved the temporary stay on Friday after denying a motion to recuse the judge assigned to the case of James and Cedric Poore.
The defense now has five days to appeal Kellough's denial before the case returns to the jurisdiction of Special Judge Stephen Clark in Tulsa County District Court.
However, the court's schedule won't allow a preliminary hearing to resume until July 15.
The Poores have pleaded not guilty to charges related to the January deaths of Misty Nunley, Julie Jackson, Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor. The four women were found tied up and shot in the head.
