On Good Friday, April 6, 2012, a string of killings occurred in north Tulsa that left three dead and two injured. Alvin Lee Watts and Jacob Carl England accepted plea agreements on Dec. 16, calling for the life-without-parole sentences, with prosecutors dropping their requests for death sentences for both defendants.
