MOORE, Okla. - Authorities say a man suspected of beheading a woman at a food processing plant in suburban Oklahoma City had been fired.

Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said Friday that the suspect, who has not been charged, had been fired from Vaughan Foods.

Lewis said the man entered the plant and stabbed 54-year-old Colleen Hufford, severing her head. Lewis said the man then started to stab 43-year-old Traci Johnson.

Vaughan Foods chief operating officer and reserve county officer Mark Vaughan stopped the assault by shooting the suspect. The suspect and Johnson were taken to the hospital and Lewis said they are in stable condition.

Lewis says Moore police have asked the FBI to aid in the investigation and look into the suspect's background.
