TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A man who prosecutors say targeted blacks in a shooting spree that killed three people earlier this year is scheduled for arraignment for assaulting a jail guard.
Jake England is due in court Wednesday on charges of elbowing and cursing the guard as he was being taken to his cell from a jail recreation yard on Nov. 1.
England and Alvin Watts are both awaiting arraignment later this month for the shooting deaths of William Allen, Bobby Clark and Dannaer Fields as they walked near their homes on April 6. Two other people were shot but survived. All five victims were black.
Prosecutors say the two targeted blacks because the father of England -- who is a Cherokee Indian -- was killed by a black man in 2010.
