An Oklahoma man may face the death penalty for allegedly beheading his co-worker, according to the district attorney in the case.
Officials say the suspect, Alton Nolen, "didn't like white people" and had an "infatuation" with beheadings. Nolen had just been suspended from his job at a food processing plant and attacked the first person he saw there.

Charges are expected for the man accused of beheading a woman in the United States. This brutal attack took place not on the battlegrounds of Syria, but in Oklahoma.
Officials say the suspect, Alton Nolen, found out he was losing his job at a food processing plant. Leading up to the attack, Nolen converted to Islam and his views turned extreme, some of which he posted on Facebook. A law enforcement official tells CNN Nolen watched beheading videos, but it is unclear if those were ISIS-related.
