TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The man accused in a 2010 quadruple murder made his last court appearance before his second trial starts.

Henry Segura will be back in court on Monday morning. Segura is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend Brandi Peters, her twin daughters, and the son they shared back in 2010.

When the case went to a jury just two years ago, they couldn't decide if he was guilty or not.

Segura and attorneys spent more than three hours in court Friday morning going over last-minute motions.

They went over the witnesses who will take the stand, like James Carlos Santos. Santos is the former gang member who admitted in court that he ordered all four murders.

Segura also requested a six person jury instead of 12.

His attorney said a smaller jury is more likely to make a unanimous decision and Judge Hankinson agreed.

Jury selection begins Monday at 8 a.m. The trial is expect to last for two weeks.

Henry Segura, the man accused of a quadruple murder in Tallahassee is back in court for a pre-trial hearing.
