HC)--The Muslim convert charged today with first-degree murder in the Moore beheading case reportedly confessed to police that he attacked and killed one victim and attempted to kill a second victim. According to NewsOK.com Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said it is “highly likely” prosecutors will seek the death penalty against 30 year-old Alton Alexander Nolen. Mashburn said he would visit with the family of beheading victim 54 year-old Colleen Hufford before making a decision on the death penalty. Hufford was killed Thursday afternoon at the Vaughan Foods plant in Moore. Authorities charged Nolen with three felony counts, first-degree murder, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and assault with a deadly weapon.

 

 

The second victim, 43 year-old Traci Johnson filed a complaint with the Vaughan Foods human resources department against Nolen earlier in the day. Mashburn said the complaint was related to a possible racial confrontation at the plant. Johnson is expected to recover from her injuries. Nolen reportedly learned he was being suspended from his job, went to his home and retrieved a large kitchen knife. Nolen attacked Hufford from behind and then attempted to attack Johnson. Several employees at the plant attempted to stop the attack. Nolen charged at Vaughan Foods chief operating officer Mark Vaughan with the knife, before Vaughan shot him.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A federal judge has sided with Oklahoma in its lawsuit challenging some subsidies offered to people who buy insurance under the health care law. U.S. District Judge Ronald White is the latest to weigh in on regulations that allow health insurance tax credits under the Affordable Care Act in all 50 states. Earlier this month, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia threw out a decision that had questioned those subsidies. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt sued in 2011, claiming that the law didn't explicitly allow subsidies for people who bought insurance in states, like Oklahoma, that didn't set up their own insurance exchanges. In a ruling Tuesday, White agreed, saying the regulation was "an abuse of discretion." White stayed his ruling pending appeal.
