Tulsa shooting trial to be delayed

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Officials say that next week's arraignment for two men charged in a Tulsa shooting spree that left three people dead and two wounded will likely be postponed.

   Jacob England and Alvin Watts are scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges of first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill in the April 6 shootings.

   Tulsa County prosecutors have asked a judge to postpone the arraignment to give them more time to decide whether to seek the death penalty. A spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office, Susan Witt, said Friday that the arraignment will likely be postponed because defense attorneys say they do not object.

   A judge has not yet ruled on the request for the postponement.
