TULSA, Oklahoma -

A man charged in a string of shootings on Good Friday of last year pleaded not guilty Wednesday.

A judge entered the plea on behalf of Jake England.

He is charged with three counts of first degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

A second suspect, Alvin Watts, did not enter a plea.

His attorney is waiting on a motion asking that the two men be tried separately.

Both men also face hate crime charges in the April 2012 shootings that killed three people and wounded two others in a predominately black Tulsa neighborhood.

Prosecutors want the death penalty.
