Taylor is accused of shooting Atwood in the chest in a car along Eastex Freeway and then pushing him out of the car and driving away.

Atwood was transported to the hospital in serious condition but later died of his injuries.

After the shooting, Taylor fled to Lumberton where Hardin County deputies found her and seized a firearm from her vehicle and transported her back to the Beaumont Police Department.
