I live in Oklahoma, so this is personal. In Norman, Oklahoma, Alton Nolen, 33, was just given the death penalty. He is a Muslim and he beheaded a female coworker, as well as injuring another before he was stopped three years ago. Nolen was convicted of first-degree murder last September for brutally taking the life of a good and kind woman named Colleen Hufford, 54, inside Vaughan Foods. That was in September of 2014. Nolen got a two-phase trial that started in mid-September. Jurors first recommended Nolen be sentenced to death in October.
The proceeding in front of Judge Lori Walkley lasted less than 15 minutes. She upheld the recommendation yesterday. “May God have mercy on your soul,” Judge Walkley said as she handed down the sentence. It’s not God this guy has to worry about. He’s going somewhere a lot warmer and there won’t be a single virgin to be found there. I just hope his sentence is carried out quickly. If I had my way, his punishment would fit his crime. I’ll let you imagine what I mean by that.
During the trial, prosecutors played recordings of Nolen confessing to the stabbings while he was hospitalized following the attack. In the recordings, Nolen says he doesn’t “regret it at all” and that “oppressors don’t need to be here.” Investigators said Nolen had just been suspended from his job at the Vaughan Foods plant when he walked inside the company’s administrative office and attacked his co-workers. His attorneys tried to plead insanity. But prosecutors said Nolen knew right from wrong before he attacked Hufford. Nolen had repeatedly tried to plead guilty and asked to be executed, but Walkley declined to accept his plea.

Hufford’s daughter, Kelli Baranek, says she isn’t sure if her family could ever truly put her mother’s death behind them, but she adds the healing process can now begin. Baranek has been to nearly every court hearing since her mother’s murder. “I won’t lie. There were days it was really hard to sit there very quiet and understand it’s all part of the process, but I also knew this day would come and here we are,” she said. “While we may not ever have full-blown closure ever for the rest of our lives, at least it’s a small piece of closure.”
The beheading rocked Oklahoma and enraged the people here. This guy is murderously insane and he was not sorry at all for what he did. Nolen was also sentenced to three life sentences, plus 130 years combined on assault charges for stabbing another coworker, Traci Jones, and attacking other workers inside the plant that day. Johnson survived the attack. “I feel bad for him [Nolen], and I don’t know if that’s stupid or not but I feel bad for him,” Johnson said Friday. “Justice was done. Justice was served, and I’m glad it’s over with. I don’t have anything to worry about anymore. Nobody’s going to hurt me at all.” She is far more charitable than I am. I don’t feel bad for this demon in the least.

In Oklahoma in 2014, Nolen justified his actions to investigators by claiming he was a practicing Muslim and believed his actions were commanded by the Quran. Following brief arguments from both Cleveland County DA Greg Mashburn and defense attorney Mitchell Solomon, Judge Walkey ruled that Nolen will serve all of his sentences consecutively. “I know he got the death penalty, and I know it may seem meaninglessness, but it’s not meaningless. There were individuals that were attacked that day and had to live through what they had to live through. They deserve to have a separate sentence,” said Mashburn. And he’s right, it definitely means something to these victims.
Unfortunately, the way our legal system works, if this human garbage wants to appeal, it could take 10 to 15 years before he’s given a lethal injection. If he chooses to not appeal, well then… he could be on his way to hell much sooner. When the sentence was handed down, Nolen’s behavior was exactly the same as it had been during the trial. He sat in silence with his ears covered and eyes shut. “My guess is, if lawyers can’t communicate with him or he doesn’t want to communicate with them, then there’ll be some further litigation in the appellate court about what to do,” said Mashburn. I assume that has to do with his mental state.
Nolen was inspired by ISIS and their barbaric videos. He is an Islamic convert… a devout one. After he beheaded Hufford with a butcher knife and went on a stabbing spree, he was shot before he was apprehended. He deserves much worse. May he rot in hell.
