MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Funeral services have been set for a worker at a food processing plant who was beheaded during an attack last week.

Services for 54-year-old Colleen Hufford will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Southgate Baptist Church in Moore.

Hufford’s family released a statement Wednesday saying the violence of her killing “adds a depth of grief we are trying to comprehend.”

Prosecutors have charged 30-year-old Alton Nolen with first-degree murder in Hufford’s killing, and District Attorney Greg Mashburn says it’s “highly likely” that he’ll seek the death penalty.

Mashburn says Nolen was angry about being suspended from his job at the plant, retrieved a knife from home and attacked Hufford from behind. Mashburn says Nolen was attacking a second woman when he was shot by a plant manager.
