Good Friday Shooting Suspect In Court For Jailhouse Assault Incident
A Tulsa man accused in a deadly April shooting spree appears in court on separate charges alleging that he assaulted a jail guard.
Jake England was charged after he allegedly elbowed and cursed a guard as he was being taken to his cell at the Tulsa jail from the recreation yard Nov. 1.
England appeared in a Tulsa courtroom Thursday for a preliminary hearing. His attorney filled a motion to dismiss the charges but it was thrown out. He's set for arraignment in district court January 7th.
England and Alvin Watts face murder and hate crime charges in the April rampage that killed three and wounded two others. They're to be arraigned on those charges Jan. 9.
All five shooting victims were black, and authorities say England may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years earlier.
