TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Tulsa man of fatally shooting four women in 2013 and recommended he spend the rest of his life in prison without parole.

Cedric Poore was convicted late Friday on four counts of felony murder. He was accused of murdering 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

Poore’s brother, James, was previously convicted of the same crimes and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The four women were discovered in a back bedroom of Powell’s apartment. All had their hands tied behind their backs with blue or pink fabric and were shot in the head.

Authorities said the Poores shot the women because they feared the women might identify them.

Cedric Poore will be sentenced later.
