Two men suspected of a string of murders in north Tulsa made their initial court appearance this morning via closed circuit video in Tulsa County District Court. Their arraignment was postponed until 9 a.m. April 16 to give prosecutors time to review the filing of charges.

Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, are being held at the Tulsa Jail and are accused of three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and a single complaint of possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

The two did not speak during a video appearance that lasted less than two minutes before Special District Judge Bill Hiddle. The suspects were wearing orange jumpsuits and were handcuffed as they were escorted by deputies at the Tulsa Jail.

England's bond was set at $3 million for each of the three murder counts -- a total of $9 million. The bonds for two shooting-with-intent-to-kill complaints were set at $75,000 -- a total of $150,000. Watts' bond amounts were the same. The possession of a firearm bond was $10,000 for each suspect.
