US worker held after woman beheaded

US prison records indicate that a man suspected of beheading a co-worker at an Oklahoma food processing plant had spent time in prison and was on probation for assaulting a police officer.

Police said 30-year-old Alton Nolen is accused of stabbed two women at Vaughan Foods in Moore, an Oklahoma City suburb. One woman was killed while the other is in hospital.

Moore Police Sergeant Jeremy Lewis said Nolen was shot and wounded by a company official who also is a reserve sheriff's deputy. Nolen has not been formally charged and remains in hospital.

Department of Corrections records indicate Nolen is on probation for assault and battery on a police officer. He also was convicted of cocaine possession with intent to distribute in 2011, and served almost two years in prison.
