OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Jurors are set to hear closing arguments in the case for two men accused in the killings of a prostitute featured on the HBO series “Cathouse” and three other people.

Closing arguments are expected to be heard Monday.

The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1Pj7eGH ) reports that Denny Edward Phillips and Russell Lee Hogshooter are charged with six counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy in the deaths of Brooke Phillips, Milagros Barrera, Jennifer Lynn Ermey and Casey Mark Barrientos. The other two murder charges are because Brooke Phillips and Barrerra were pregnant.

Prosecutors say Denny Phillips ordered the killing of Barrientos and that the women were killed to eliminate witnesses.

Phillips and Hogshooter, who have pleaded not guilty in the case, did not testify.

Two other men, David Tyner and Jonathan Cochran, have pleaded guilty.
