Hearing to Resume for 2 Okla. Men Accused in Shootings (Aug 14, 2012)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Two men accused of gunning down three black people in April could learn whether prosecutors have enough evidence against them to stand trial.

A judge could rule Tuesday on the evidence presented at a preliminary hearing last month.

Twenty-year-old Jake England and 33-year-old Alvin Watts are facing murder and hate crimes charges stemming from the Easter weekend shootings that killed William Allen, Bobby Clark and Dannaer Fields as they were walking near their homes.

The shootings happened in a predominantly black section of the city and all of the victims were black. Watts is white and England identifies himself as Cherokee Indian.

Authorities believe England may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years ago.
