The two suspects in Tulsa's deadly Good Friday shootings entered not-guilty pleas on Monday to murder and other charges associated with the shootings. Susan Witt, a spokeswoman for the Tulsa district attorney's office, told The Times that Jacob "Jake" England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 33, appeared in Tulsa County District Court via closed-circuit television from Tulsa Jail, where they have been held since their arrest on Easter Sunday. Police have said the pair, who were roommates, confessed to the shootings shortly after their arrest.

HOUSTON -- One of two suspects charged with murder and hate crimes on allegations of shooting five black Tulsa residents, three fatally, insists in a newly released jail video that he's not racist, as does his mother. Jacob England, 19, appears in the video wearing a black-and-white-striped jail uniform, standing in a stark room, his hair shaved on the sides into what looks like a Mohawk. He talks about growing up in North Tulsa, home to a large African American community, saying he had friends of various races.
