NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A jury has recommended the death penalty for an Oklahoma man convicted of beheading a co-worker in 2014.
Thirty-three-year-old Alton Nolen was convicted on Sept. 29 of killing 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and trying to kill another co-worker at a food processing plant.
Jurors agreed on Oct. 2 that Nolen should serve three life sentences plus 130 years in prison for his attack on the co-worker who survived.
They took less than three hours Thursday to recommend the death penalty for the beheading.
