Oklahoma Beheading Victim’s Husband Awarded $100k in Workers’ Comp Benefits

January 21, 2015

The husband of a woman who was beheaded last year at an Oklahoma food-processing plant has been awarded $100,000 in death benefits plus $418 a week for the rest of his life.

The Oklahoman newspaper reports the benefits were approved in December for KC Hufford by an administrative law judge at the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission.

KC Hufford’s wife, Colleen Hufford, was killed in the Sept. 25 attack at Vaughan Foods in Moore.

Prosecutors have charged Alton Nolen with first-degree murder in the case and say they will seek the death penalty.

Police say Nolen attacked Hufford after learning he’d been suspended from his job at the plant.
