TULSA - The state of Oklahoma filed a motion for continuance in the Good Friday shootings case Tuesday in an apparent effort to push back the court date of a primary suspect in the crimes.
Jacob England, 20, and 33-year-old Alvin Watts are expected in court for arraignment Monday.
The motion is the second filed by Oklahoma prosecutors. In October, a judge granted a one-month continuance for the Tulsa County District Attorney's office to determine whether or not to pursue the death penalty.
No judicial response has been made.
England and Watts are suspected of killing three people and injuring two more in an April shooting spree in north Tulsa. All five victims were black.
