An Oklahoma judge on Friday put off deciding whether to accept a man's request to plead guilty to first-degree murder in the beheading of a co-worker, as a death sentence would still be possible.If Nolen is allowed to plead guilty, there would be a separate hearing to determine his sentence.Nolen, 31, told Walkley on Friday that he wants to plead guilty to three of the six charges stemming from the attack at the Vaughn Foods plant in Moore, including the first-degree murder charge and two assault charges. At a February hearing in which he also asked to plead guilty, Nolen told Walkley that he would only accept a death sentence, not one of the lesser sentences the charge carries of life in prison with or without the possibility of parole.
