Shooting Suspect to be Arraigned for Other Crime
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A man who prosecutors say targeted blacks in a shooting spree that killed three people earlier this year is scheduled for arraignment for assaulting a jail guard.
Jake England is due in court Wednesday on charges of elbowing and cursing the guard as he was being taken to his cell from a jail recreation yard on Nov. 1.
England and Alvin Watts are both awaiting arraignment later this month for the shooting deaths of William Allen, Bobby Clark and Dannaer Fields as they walked near their homes on April 6. Two other people were shot but survived. All five victims were black.
Prosecutors say the two targeted blacks because the father of England -- who is a Cherokee Indian -- was killed by a black man in 2010.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Officials in Washington are expressing disappointment that Fairchild Air Force base was not chosen as the first home of the Air Force's new aerial refueling tankers.
Members of the Kansas congressional delegation announced Wednesday that McConnell Air Force Base in Topeka, Kan., was chosen as the first base to receive the new Boeing-built KC-46A tankers.
Fairchild, the Spokane area's largest single employer, remains a candidate to receive new tankers later.
The new aircraft will replace the aging KC-135 fleet flown by crews, including those at Fairchild, for the past 50 years. The Air Force will base 36 of the new aircraft at McConnell starting in 2016.
Fairchild was finalist for the job, along with bases in North Dakota and Oklahoma.
