Oklahoma prosecutors seeking death penalty in beheading case


OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against a man accused of beheading a woman and attacking others at a food distribution warehouse in Moore, Oklahoma, according to court documents filed on Thursday.

Alton Nolen, 30, has been charged with murder in the death of Colleen Hufford, 54, and the attempted murder of Traci Johnson, 43, as well as assault with a deadly weapon.

A beheading in Oklahoma: Was it terrorism or workplace violence?

But as residents of Moore grapple with the shock of what happened in their town, the gruesome nature of the crime has also sparked a politically charged question: Was it an act of Islamist terrorism or an extreme case of workplace violence?

Mashburn and other local officials have so far described what happened at Vaughan Foods as a horrifying but random case of an angry worker lashing out. But the grisly attack came after months of highly publicized beheadings by the Islamic State militant group and just days after the FBI warned local law enforcement officials around the country to be on guard against domestic attacks by supporters of the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

While the FBI says it has found no links so far between Nolen and the Islamic State or other extremist groups, there is little doubt he sympathized with their cause. Nolen, who had recently converted to Islam while serving time in prison for drug and assault charges, posted long anti-American screeds to his Facebook page, where he was listed under the name Jah'Keem Yisrael. On the page, which has since been removed, he published photos of Osama bin Laden and militant fighters as well as warnings to people who did not adhere to Muslim beliefs.

I read this story earlier this afternoon. It appears the perpetrator was her own 35 year-old son who had mental issues.
