Woman accused of killing husband appears in court

MUSTANG, Okla. — A Canadian County woman accused in the murder of her husband, the former fire chief of Nichols Hills, will head to trial.

Keith Bryan was gunned down in his Mustang home last September.

Becky Bryan claims it was an intruder, angry over being passed up for a job, who pulled the trigger.

Three OSBI agents provided testimony Wednesday in the woman’s preliminary hearing.

One of them said Becky Bryan told him the shooter seemed like a nice guy and she knew he wouldn’t hurt her so she followed him out the garage door after the shooting.

Prosecutors said the story doesn’t add up.

Authorities found a gun, a casing and a glove in a blanket the Bryan’s dryer.

Investigators said the casing matches one found in the couch where Keith Bryan was killed.

They also said Becky Bryan had gunshot residue on her hands and so did the glove in the dryer.

They said DNA inside the glove matches Becky Bryan.

Bryan’s attorney, Gary James, said a similar gun was stolen from the Bryan’s son and may have been used by the intruder, but agents testified Wednesday the serial number on the missing gun did not match the one found in the dryer.

It is not clear yet when the trial will take place.
