Arraignment for alleged Tulsa shooters passed
TULSA (AP) — The arraignment for two men accused in an April shooting spree that left three people dead and two more wounded has been postponed until Jan. 9.
Jake England and Alvin Watts face murder and hate crime charges from the spree.
All five of their victims were black, and authorities say England — who identifies himself as Cherokee Indian — may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years ago.
England has said he has no ill will toward black people.
Arraignment for the pair was reset Monday after prosecutors asked for more time to determine whether to seek the death penalty for one or both men.
