Earlier today, cops locked up the wife of murdered Oklahoma Fire Chief Keith Bryan. Rebecca Bryan was arrested at a hotel around noonish on a first-degree murder complaint in the shooting death of her husband. In related news, even in death, Chief Bryan saved a life as Oklahoma City Fire Chaplain Ted Wilson has received a liver transplant: the liver from slain Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan.
As you know, Chief Bryan was shot once in the head Tuesday night in the Bryans' home in Mustang. Rebecca Bryan lied to cops claiming he was shot by an intruder, who apologized afterward and said the chief should have hired him. There was worry that the "shooter" may have confused him with OKC Chief Keith Bryant and it may have been line of duty related-but of course, that was not true. Rebecca Bryan had called 911, Fire EMS and police responded, he was rushed to a hospital, where he died the next day.
As time went on, Bryan's wife clearly became the main suspect. Police found a Ruger handgun matching the murder weapon in a clothes dryer at the home, and a box for the gun was found between the mattress and box spring of the bed in the master bedroom. Ammunition for the gun also was found nearby. Additionally, the clothes dryer was not in the path that Rebecca Bryan claimed as the way the supposed gunman took in leaving after the shooting - and there is no indication anyone else was involved in the slaying.
The couple were involved in a divorce and they have two grown sons. Our condolences-Rest In Peace.
