MOORE, OKLA. (KFSM) – A man accused in the beheading of a woman at a food processing plant in Moore, Okla. is set to appear before a judge Monday (Sept. 29).

Officers at the Moore Police Department say charges against Alton Alexander Nolen will include first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Nolen was fired from a food processing plant last Thursday (Sept. 25). Officers said he returned hours later with a knife and attacked the first people he saw.

Authorities said he beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, and then went on to attack 43-year-old Traci Johnson. She was treated for numerous wounds at an area hospital and has been released.

The FBI is now involved and further looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers came forward and  said he tried to convert them to Islam after converting to the religion himself.

The FBI is also working closely with the Moore Police Department throughout their investigation.

At this time, it is not known if the suspect’s religious beliefs played a role in the attack.

    Maybe we should bring the guillotine back for special uses on fanatics like this guy. Instead this creep will end up being kept and fed in a cozy jail cell where all his needs are taken care of thanks to the taxpaying victims. This idiot couldn’t make it on his own so he takes this religious fanaticism and uses it as his meal ticket. Let’s just hope there is an “attempted” escape along the way so we can dispatch him to his diseased virgins.

    He looks so tough and scary, then you remember he attacked a female. Not man enough to go after a guy. Seems to be a lot of that kind of mentality. Cowards.
