June 26, 2019 - 11:02 am

(1010 WINS) — Beth Chapman, star of “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” died after a battle with cancer, announced her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman on Twitter Wednesday.

The pair starred in the reality show that made them famous on A&E from 2004 to 2012.

Beth Chapman was 51.

“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side,” Chapman wrote on Twitter.

Beth Chapman was put into the hospital in late June after having trouble breathing.

She was placed into a medically induced coma to prevent additional pain, said family spokesperson Mona Wood-Sword.

Chapman received a diagnosis of throat cancer in 2017, and was later declared cancer-free after a tumor was removed, but was later diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

Besides “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” the Chapmans appeared in other reality shows including “Dog & Beth: On The Hunt” on Country Music Television.

Her biography on the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” website notes she spent 30 years in the bail bond business.

Chapman leaves behind her husband and 12 children.
