New court documents allege a gun used in the Good Friday shootings could have been the same gun that killed one of the accused Good Friday shooters father.

Pernell Jefferson’s attorney filed paperwork on Tuesday asking for the guns used in the Good Friday shootings to be tested to see if one of the guns also killed Carl England.

Jacob England and Alvin Watts are charged with three first degree murder counts, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and hate crimes for the deaths of Dannaer Fields, William Allen and Bobby Clark and the shooting of two other men in North Tulsa in April.

England’s father, Carl, was shot to death during an altercation with Pernell Jefferson a little over two years ago. The death was ruled a justified homicide because of the circumstances. Jefferson is charged with attempted first degree burglary and possession of a fire arm for the altercation, Jefferson has maintained that the gun used to kill Carl England was his own, not Jefferson’s.

In papers filed on Tuesday, Jefferson’s attorney allege that Jacob England was present at the altercation that led to his father’s death and helped hide evidence in the case, including a baseball bat and wheelbarrow handle that had been used to beat Jefferson. They also allege Jacob England took the gun used in the crime.

Jefferson’s attorney wants the Tulsa Police Department or Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to test the bullet that killed Carl England against the guns used in the Good Friday shootings to determine if the gun belonged to the England family.

Jacob England and Alvin Watts are next scheduled to be in court on May 30th.
