OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former Marine charged with killing four people, including a prostitute featured on HBO's "Cathouse" series, is due in court.

David "Hooligan" Tyner is charged in the death of Brooke Phillips, who worked at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada. Phillips was found in a burning home in Oklahoma City on Nov. 9, 2009, along with three other people. All four were shot.

Phillips was pregnant, as was victim Milagrous Barrera, so Tyner faces six murder counts.

A judge in Oklahoma City is scheduled to hear pretrial motions Thursday. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty when the
case goes to trial next month.

Tyner has pleaded not guilty. A witness testified at a preliminary hearing that the killings happened because of "a big, stupid situation over money."
