ALTUS, Okla. (TNN) - More details surrounding the suspect behind a truck theft that led to a man's death in Altus have been released.

Altus police say she took off with Daniel Moore’s work truck when he left it running. He hopped in the back to try to stop her. He eventually fell out and later died from his injuries.

According to investigators, Hooper later drove to a friends’ home and asked to get the truck painted and to get a bumper guard added to it.

She’s set to have her initial court appearance on Thursday.
