Autopsies performed

TULSA — Autopsies on four women found dead at a crime-plagued Tulsa apartment complex show each was shot in the head and had drugs in their systems.

Autopsy reports released Wednesday say 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor each had two gunshot wounds to the head; 33-year-old Misty Nunley was shot in the head and ear; and 55-year-old Julie Jackson was shot once in the head.

Toxicology reports say each tested positive for methamphetamine.

The women were found bound and shot on Jan. 7.

Brothers Cedric and James Poore are charged in the deaths of the women. Police say they were staying in the same apartment complex as their four victims and robbed them — then killed them because they feared they would be identified.

Both have pleaded not guilty.
