As prosecutors await the case against two brothers arrested in the deaths of four women at a Tulsa apartment complex, some residents say they doubt recent security fixes will change the crime-plagued area.

Thirty-nine-year-old Cedric Poore and 32-year-old James Poore were arrested Wednesday in the fatal January shootings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

The brothers are believed to have been staying in the complex with other tenants. An apartment manager says she could not find either man's name on leasing paperwork.

The siblings are being held in the Tulsa jail and are scheduled for arraignment Feb. 19.

A spokeswoman with the district attorney's office says the office expects to get the case from police within the next two weeks.
