England's fiance, Sheran Hart Wilde of Tulsa, died on January 10, 2012, according to Johnson Funeral Service. She was also the mother of his child, Jacob Carl England II.

Police arrested England and Watts after a Crime Stoppers tip. The tipster also led authorities to the white pickup that a witness said was used in the crime. It was registered to Carl or Jacob England, according to arrest reports.

On Friday at 10:15 p.m. the following post appears:

"I do believer it just mite be the time to call it quits I I hate to say it like that but I'm done if something does happen tonite be ready for another funeral later."
