Beth Chapman, the brash co-star of the reality TV show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and wife of the show's star Duane "Dog" Chapman, has died. She was 51.

A family spokeswoman, Mona Wood-Sword, said in a statement that Beth Chapman died early Wednesday at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu after an almost two-year battle with cancer. She was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017.

A tumor was removed and she was cancer-free. But she was later diagnosed with lung cancer.
