Alton Alexander Nolen, 30, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the beheading of a 54-year-old woman last week at his former workplace in Oklahoma and an attack on another woman, said Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn.

Nolen was also charged with a third felony, assault with a deadly weapon, the prosecutor said.

“It is highly likely I will seek the death penalty in this case,” Mashburn added.
