Woman Accuses North Tulsa Shooting Spree Suspect Of Also Killing Her Daughter
TULSA, Oklahoma - There are new murder allegations involving the Good Friday shootings in north Tulsa.
Jake England and Alvin Watts are in jail without bond on murder and hate-crimes charges, after five black people were shot on April 6th.
Three victims died.
Now, a North Tulsa woman believes her daughter was England's first victim.
England has said he watched his girlfriend, the mother of his child, shoot and kill herself.
The girlfriend's family now thinks he lied about what happened.
"I'm thinking that he murdered her January 10th," Cindy Wilde, said about her daughter's death.
Wilde was in shock after her 24-year-old daughter, Sheran Wilde, died from a gunshot wound in January. Now, she's enraged.
"I loved the guy, just like my daughter did," Cindy Wilde said of England. "He's nice, loving, caring, I thought. He played me just like he played her."
Sheran Wilde had three children.
The youngest is England's son.
Cindy has custody of Sheran's middle child, a 3-year-old boy, who Cindy says was also in the room when Sheran died.
"The 3-year-old was sitting there watching it, and he said at the therapist today, "Daddy Jake shot mama," Wilde said.
England is accused in the random north Tulsa shooting spree that took place on April 6th.
After his arrest, England spoke about recent stresses in his life, including Sheran's death.
"It's impacted me more than anyone could really ever imagine," England said.
In a jailhouse interview, England's attorney asked how Sheran died.
"She shot herself in the head about 2 feet away from me and our son right there in the same room," England said.
The medical examiner's office is still investigating, but says Sheran died from a gunshot wound and the manner was suicide.
That ruling is preliminary until the death report is complete.
While Cindy waits for that final report, she's wondering what would have happened had England been tied to Sheran's death.
"Those poor black people wouldn't have got shot and killed," Cindy Wilde said. "They're going through the same thing me and my family is going through. I know how they feel."
Cindy says she asked England about shooting Sheran, and he denied it.
England's attorney, Clark Brewster, says Sheran's death was fully investigated and the allegations that England killed her are untrue and Cindy Wilde is just attempting to gain custody of England's son.
