TULSA - Tulsa County prosecutors say they will ask for the death penalty for two men charged with a deadly shooting spree in north Tulsa last April.
Jacob England and Alvin Watts are charged with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and various other charges in connection with the shootings April 6, 2012 that left three dead and two others wounded.
Bobby Clark, 54, Dannaer Fields, 49, and William Terrell Allen, 31, all died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Deon Lawayne Tucker, 44, and David Wayne Hall, 46, were also shot but survived.
“The defendants are presumed to be innocent under the law but we will be prepared to present our evidence at future due process hearings," said District Attorney Tim Harris.
Court papers were filed Friday, declaring the DA's intention of seeking the death penalty and explaining why.
“The filing of the Bill of Particulars, simply stated, allows the jury to consider all three punishments for First-Degree Murder under Oklahoma law if they find the defendant(s) guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," said Harris. “The jury decides what punishment fits the crime, based upon the facts and the evidence."
