On Thursday, an Oklahoma man reportedly beheaded one of his co-workers and stabbed another in a horrific attack. According to authorities, police have questioned the man and charges are expected to be filed soon.
Alton Nolen, 30, stands accused of beheading 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and injuring 43-year-old Traci Johnson at the Vaughn Foods plant on Thursday. CNN adds that Nolen had just been fired from the Moore, Okla. food processing plant prior to the incident. His attack was stopped when company CEO and Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office reserve deputy Mark Vaughn shot him.
Jeremy Lewis, spokesperson for the Moore Police Department, said that Nolen regained consciousness at the hospital on Friday. Police interviewed him, though the specifics of that conversation have yet to be revealed.
Furthermore, CNN reports Nolen had recently converted to Islam and made Facebook posts using the name Jah'Keem Yisrael. The FBI looked into the incident, though no link to terrorism has been made. Nolen is likely to be charged with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon, though federal charges could be filed as well.
