An Aug. 30 arraignment has been set for brothers Victor and Isaiah Wilson.

They have been charged in Okmulgee County district court in CF-2017 97A&B with two counts of First Degree Murder and a one count of Shooting with Intent to Kill. 

A preliminary hearing was held Friday before Judge Pandee Ramirez as the Okmulgee County District Attorney's Office presented its case.

Victor Wilson was represented by Attorney Mike Manning and Isaiah Wilson's attorney was Kathy Fry.

Testimonies were presented from four individuals to determine if the duo would be held over for trial.

The first witness was Okmulgee Police Officer Lyndon Spears who was first to respond  to the shooting scene.

Spears testified about the sequence of events as they happened to him including his immediate assessment of the crime scene. 

The next three witnesses were all individuals that had been involved in the incident in one way or another. 

After each testimony, both Wilson brother's defenders had a chance to cross examine the witnesses. 

At the end of the hearing, Judge Ramirez ruled that the two will face arraignment.

The proceeding will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 30 with Judge Ken Adair  presiding. 

The shootings happened on April 1, around 10:30 p.m. near the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and Ohio Streets.

When law enforcement arrived at the scene, officers found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. Two of those victims died from their wounds at the scene. The third victim was transported to the Muscogee Creek Nation Medical Center and then transferred to a Tulsa hospital. 

Killed in the incident were 52-year-old Anthony Cooks and 29-year-old Corey Todd. Donte Todd was hospitalized with his injuries.

Police immediately began looking for suspects and people of interest. 

On April 4, Victor Wilson and Isaiah Wilson turned themselves in and submitted to interviews after which they were arrested for the shootings.
