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.
