Oklahoma City, Okla. —It appears to be a strange coincidence.Additional details in a different article: Oklahoma Beheadings: Second Oklahoma Muslim Threatens To Behead Coworker Because ‘This Is Just What We Do’. Excerpt:
On the same day (Friday) Moore police announced the deadly attack inside Vaughan Foods, Oklahoma City officers arrested a fired nursing home employee for threatening to cut off a co-worker’s head.
Police tell Newsok.com, Jacob Murithi had been working at the Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City.
He’s said to have threatened the unidentified co-worker on Sept. 19.
She told officers Murithi identified himself as a Muslim. He then mentioned he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians.”
He’s currently at the Oklahoma County Jail on a terrorism count. Police say his bail is set at $1 million.
Less than 20 miles from where Alton Alexander Nolen is accused of beheading a co-worker the day before, a second Oklahoma man has been arrested for threatening to do the same.
In what The Oklahoman is calling a “bizarre coincidence,” another arrest has been made in Oklahoma City involving a beheading.

The victim, who has not been identified, claims that Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians.” The woman said she asked him why they kill Christians and his response was very matter-of-fact....
The police report outlines the events as told by the victim. She said the beheading was brought up when Muriithi asked her what time she got off work. The woman said she jokingly replied by asking him if he was going to kill her. Jacob then responded, “Yes.” He said he was going to cut her head off. The victim asked Jacob what he was going to cut her head off with, and he said, “A blade,” then told her after he did it he was going to post it on Facebook.
The victim said that at no point did she feel that Muriithi was joking. He made all statements in a very serious manner. The victim also has another co-worker to back up part of her story. Apparently as the woman left the nursing home, Jacob repeated in the presence of another employee, that he was going to “use a blade.”...
