A jury has recommended the death penalty for an Oklahoma man convicted of beheading a co-worker in 2014.

Alton Nolen, of Idabel, was convicted of first-degree murder in the September 2014 beheading of 54-year-old Colleen Hufford at Vaughan Foods in Moore.

Jurors agreed on October 2 that Nolen should serve three life sentences plus 130 years in prison on assault and battery charges stemming from his attack on the co-worker who survived.

Nolen rammed his auto into another vehicle in the company parking lot, beheaded Hufford, and stabbed Johnson before Mark Vaughn, the company owner, shot Nolen in self-defense. Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley declined to accept his plea. She asked them to consider any violent felonies, evidence of him being a threat to society, whether his crime was cruel, and whether others were at risk of death. "I submit to you, he would do it again in a heartbeat". During closing arguments, Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Masburn noted Nolen asked for the death penalty at one point. "Give it to him, and let him find out", Mashburn told the jury.
