Jurors to decide if man convicted of beheading is intellectually disabled

NORMAN, OK (KSWO)- Jurors will return to the courtroom in Norman today to deliberate on whether or not convicted murderer Alton Nolen is intellectually disabled.

Nolen was found guilty two weeks ago in the beheading of a coworker at Vaughan Foods in Moore back in 2014.

PREVIOUS STORY: Nolen sentenced in beheading trial?

On Thursday, the judge sent jurors home after saying the case hit a snag. When jurors returned Friday, they were sent home again.

Nolen has already been sentenced on five counts of assault and is awaiting sentencing for the beheading.
