CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 31-year-old man wanted for questioning in the death of his girlfriend in Chickasha has been found in a New Mexico hospital.

The body of 24-year-old Amanda Cecil was found by a family member on Friday in the Chickasha home she shared with Lofton Gray, Junior. The OSBI said Sunday law enforcement authorities learned a stolen vehicle Gray was last known to be driving was located in Gallup, New Mexico Saturday night.

The OSBI says Gray was involved in an alleged road rage incident where he threw a crow bar at a motorist. The motorist then allegedly struck Gray with his vehicle.

Gray was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. An OSBI agent has flown to New Mexico to interview Gray about Cecil’s death.
