Two men who led Oklahoma law officers on a high-speed chase Thursday through the western part of the Oklahoma City metro have warrants for their arrests in Ohio, according to law officers.

Phillip Hohn-Tucker, 21, is accused of conspiracy to commit robbery and Joshua Phillip Alexander Hohn is accused of murder in connection with a homicide in Elyria, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. 

About 2:20 a.m. Wednesday, police in Elyria were called to a school in reference to a person passed out in the parking lot.

When officers arrived, they realized the man, Barry Allen Spreng Jr., 38, of Oberlin, Ohio, was stabbed multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Detectives obtained arrest warrants for Hohn-Tucker and Hohn. Detectives are also looking for Gloria Louise Watton, 18, and she is considered a person of interest. 

Spreng's vehicle, a gray 2007 Hyundai Sonata sedan, was reportedly stolen and was thought to be used by the two suspects, police said. 

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers confirmed the two involved in the high-speed chase Thursday in a gray Hyundai Sonata are Hohn-Tucker and Hohn. 

Watton was not in the vehicle at the time of the chase. Ohio detectives told troopers they think she may be in the Tennessee area. 

It is unclear who was critically injured Thursday afternoon after the vehicle crashed.
