An Oklahoma judge entered not guilty pleas yesterday for Jake England and Alvin Watts, two men who face murder and hate crime charges in connection with an April 6th shooting in Tulsa that left three people dead and two wounded.
If found guilty, the two men could face the death penalty. In an effort to help her son, England's mother Theresa Alexander, who is also incarcerated, sent a letter to attorney Clark Brewster asking him to represent her son.
Ms. Alexander joins Starting Point this morning from the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in Oklahoma to explain why she wrote the letter to Brewster and to discuss her son's troubled background. She is joined by Attorney Brewster, who responds to the hate crime charges against England and the allegations that his client is racist.
