Nolen was officially charged with first degree murder and other charges Tuesday.

Family members have asked anyone wanting to make a donation in Hufford’s honor to give to either Catholic Charities or OU Children’s Hospital.

The second victim, Traci Johnson, 43, who was attacked while working at Vaughan Foods has been released from the hospital and is now recovering.

Authorities with the Moore Police Department say after attacking Hufford, Nolen is accused of stabbing 43-year-old Traci Johnson numerous times before being shot by Mark Vaughan, the former CEO of the company and a reserve sheriff’s deputy.
