TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Tulsa say a 37-year-old woman has been arrested after one man was electrocuted and a second man was severely shocked while allegedly trying to steal copper from a radio station transmitter.
Tulsa County Jail records show that Angie West was booked Sunday on a first-degree murder complaint. The records don’t indicate if she is represented by an attorney.
Officials say West is accused of accompanying both men to a radio tower in Sand Springs, about 7 miles (11 kilometers) west of Tulsa. Officials say the group allegedly planned to steal copper from the site to sell.
Authorities say 39-year-old Albert Badger was electrocuted. The other man, who was hospitalized, wasn’t immediately identified.
Officials say West was arrested because a death occurred during the commission of a crime.
