Arraignment set for Tulsa man in jail assault case

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa man accused in a deadly April shooting spree faces arraignment Monday on unrelated charges of allegedly assaulting a jail guard.

Jake England was charged after he allegedly elbowed and cursed a guard as he was being taken to his cell at the Tulsa jail from the recreation yard Nov. 1.

England and Alvin Watts face murder and hate crime charges in the April rampage that killed three and wounded two others. They're to be arraigned on those charges Wednesday.

All five shooting victims were black, and authorities say England may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years earlier.

Prosecutors announced Friday they would seek the death penalty for England and Watts in the killings.
