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.

The man who was electrocuted and the other man, who was hospitalized, weren't immediately identified.

Officials say West was arrested on the charge because a death occurred during the commission of a crime.
