Fire chief's wife arrested in husband's death

Mustang, Okla. (AP) _ Investigators say they have arrested the wife of Nichols Hills' slain fire chief in connection with his shooting death.

Mustang Police Department Chief Chuck Foley said Friday that Rebecca Louise Bryan was arrested at 12:20 p.m. in connection with the shooting death of Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan.  Foley says Rebecca Bryan has been booked into the Canadian County jail on a first-degree murder complaint.

Keith Bryan was shot in the head at his home shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday. He died Wednesday morning at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center.

Authorities say 52-year-old Rebecca Bryan told investigators that an intruder had shot her husband. But Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown says detectives found the murder weapon concealed in a clothes dryer in the couple's house.
