Alton Nolen More News
An Oklahoma man convicted of beheading a coworker has been sentenced to death.
Alton Nolen was given his sentence at 9:45 a.m. at the Cleveland County Courthouse. In October, a jury recommended the Nolen receive the death penalty.
Nolen was convicted in October of first degree murder and several counts of assault and battery in the 2014 beheading of Colleen Hufford at a Moore food plant. Nolen also received three life sentences plus 130 years for the assault and battery charges.
During the investigation, Nolen reportedly told law enforcement that he beheaded Hufford because he felt oppressed as a Muslim. He also said he didn’t regret what he did, and that he would’ve gone after another coworker had he not been shot by then-plant owner Mark Vaughn.
Nolen’s attorney’s argued he was “insane” during the attack and intellectually disabled. A jury ruled against him.
