NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma jury has recommended multiple life sentences on assault and battery charges for a man who beheaded a co-worker in 2014, though he still faces the death penalty for his murder conviction.

Alton Nolen was convicted Friday for killing one co-worker and trying to kill another at a food processing plant in Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City.

KWTV reports jurors agreed Monday that Nolen should serve three life sentences plus 130 years in prison on charges stemming from his attack on the co-worker who survived.

The sentencing phase is pending on the murder charge stemming from the death of 54-year-old Colleen Hufford.

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.
