SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A woman has been charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of an Oklahoma police officer.

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged 22-year-old Brooklyn Danielle Williams of Tecumseh in the death of 22-year-old Tecumseh officer Justin Terney.

Court records do not list an attorney for Williams.

Williams was driving a car March 26 carrying 35-year-old Byron James Shepard when she was stopped for a traffic violation by Terney. Authorities say Shepard ran from the scene when Terney learned he was wanted and the two eventually shot each other. Terney died the following day while Shepard was hospitalized and has since been charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors allege Williams knew Shepard's was wanted was harboring him.
