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.
