Detectives testify in Nolen case about what they saw following Vaughan Foods beheading

More testimony in the first-degree murder case against Alton Nolen continued Tuesday, including the testimony of two Moore Police detectives who documented the crime scene. 

According to Moore Police Det. Jeff Griffin, who also serves as a crime scene investigator for Moore PD, testified the head of Colleen Hufford, the woman Nolen, 33, is accused of beheading Sept. 25, 2014, was found a couple of feet from her body. He also said Hufford didn’t go out without a fight.
