TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Officials say that next week's arraignment for two men charged in a Tulsa shooting spree that left three people dead and two wounded will likely be postponed.

Jacob England and Alvin Watts are scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges of first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill in the April 6th shootings.

Tulsa County prosecutors have asked a judge to postpone the arraignment to give them more time to decide whether to seek the death penalty. A spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office, Susan Witt, said Friday that the arraignment will likely be postponed because defense attorneys say they do not object.

A judge has not yet ruled on the request for the postponement.
