      Arraignment Postponed Until January for Good Friday Shooting Suspects

      A Tulsa judge postponed arraignment for two men two men accused in a series of shootings that left three people dead and two others injured on Good Friday.

      Jacob England and Alvin Watts were scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges of first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill in the April 6 shootings. Now, they will appear in court on Jan. 9

      Tulsa County prosecutors asked the judge to postpone the arraignment to give them more time to decide whether to seek the death penalty. A spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office, Susan Witt, said Friday that the arraignment will likely be postponed because defense attorneys say they do not object.

      A judge has not yet ruled on the request for the postponement.
