    MANNFORD, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a 32-year-old Oklahoma woman is in custody and will be charged in the death of her father following a confrontation at a home west of Tulsa.

    The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that Jennifer Starkey is the suspect in the death of her father, 54-year-old James Starkey.

    Mannford police and Pawnee County sheriff's deputies responded to the home Sunday after a woman there called 911. It wasn't clear if Jennifer Starkey was the caller.

    Authorities say the elder Starkey was found dead inside.

    His daughter had injuries that required her to be hospitalized but authorities did not explain how she was hurt. She was to be booked into jail after being released from the hospital.

    It's not clear if she has an attorney to speak on her behalf.
