TULSA — A Tulsa man accused of killing a woman while trying to break into a car will learn his fate.

Matthew Thornbrough's sentencing hearing is set for Tuesday morning, where he is facing several counts, including second-degree murder.

Police say Thornbrough was breaking into an abandoned car on the side of highway 75 back in April when the owner tried to stop him.

A fight broke out, causing Thornbrough's gun to go off, killing his getaway driver Angela Walker, police say.

The jury recommends he serve a total of 67 years in prison.
