TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Two men charged with fatally shooting three people in Tulsa last year are scheduled to be in court.

Court records show Alvin Watts and Jake England are due to appear Monday afternoon ahead of their separate jury trials, which have been set for early next year.

The men are charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the Easter weekend 2012 shootings of William Allen, Bobby Clark and Dannaer Fields. They were killed as they walked near their homes in Tulsa. Two others were shot and wounded.

All five victims are black. England and Watts also face hate crimes charges and have pleaded not guilty. Watts is white. England says he's Cherokee Indian.

Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty for both men.
