Conference delayed for man charged in Oklahoma beheading

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ A court conference for a Moore man charged with beheading a co-worker has been postponed after the man's attorneys requested a competency evaluation.

A scheduling conference was scheduled Wednesday for 30-year-old Alton Nolen _ but was rescheduled for July 30.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn told The Norman Transcript (http://bit.ly/1B5RwNM ) that if Nolen is found competent the case will go forward. Mashburn said that if there's any dispute as to his competence, a jury trial could be held to settle the issue.

Nolan faces first-degree murder and other charges in the Sept 25, 2014, death of 54-year-old Colleen Hufford at Vaughan Foods. He's accused of beheading Hufford and stabbing another woman after he was suspended from his job at the plant.
