LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A truck driver has been arrested, now new details reveal what happened hours before the murder of 43-year-old Stephanie Williams.

Kenneth Ray Dunn, 54, of San Antonio was arrested Thursday morning at his work in Lancaster at High Country Transport. 

Williams was found dead wrapped in a white sheet near 46th Street and Locust Avenue in Lubbock on January 25th. Williams died from blunt force trauma to the head. Police used fingerprints to identify her.

It's still unclear where exactly the murder took place or when it happened. Police believe Dunn could have used a tool as a weapon.

Police believe Williams traveled with Dunn to drop of a shipment in Lubbock that day. Records show Dunn made a delivery at the Labatt Food Service Building on the 5800 block of Elm in Lubbock at 6:07 p.m. That's approximately 1.5 miles from where Williams body was located.

Police reviewed surveillance video from Lowe's Warehouse on the 4400 block of Locust Avenue, two blocks from where the body was found. Investigators observed Dunn's white 18-wheeler traveling north, then west past the business at 6:30 p.m.

GPS records from Dunn's truck show he was within a mile of the body dump site just before police discovered Williams around 8:00 p.m.

According to the arrest warrant, Williams was last known to be with two friends at the Chrome Shop truck stop in Dallas the day she was murdered.

Her friend Paul Nance, also known as "Ice Cream," told police Williams was with Dunn the morning of the 25th. He said Williams asked Nance to write down Dunn's truck number in case something happened. 

Nance advised police that Dunn frequented the truck stop to solicit prostitutes and buy crack. According to records Williams has been convicted multiple times for prostitution.

Nance told police he was in the truck before Williams and Dunn left for Lubbock. He observed Williams lying down in the sleep area.

Lubbock detectives are still in the Dallas area investigating. They have processed Dunn's truck for evidence.

Dunn is expected to be transported to the Lubbock County Detention Center next week.
