TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors are expected to ask a judge Wednesday morning to delay a scheduled preliminary hearing for two men charged in a Tulsa shooting spree because they haven't received reports back from the state medical examiner on the three victims.
Assistant District Attorney Doug Drummond filed the request to delay the hearing for Jacob England and Alvin Watts earlier this month. Attorneys for the accused men have also agreed to the delay request.
Watts and England are charged with first-degree murder, shooting with intent to kill and malicious harassment in the April shootings that left three people dead and two others wounded.
Authorities claim the men intentionally targeted black people - an allegation that England's attorney denies. A judge has entered not-guilty pleas on behalf of England and Watts.
