Wife of OK Fire Chief Sentenced to Life

EL RENO, Okla_ A Mustang woman convicted of killing her husband, former Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan, has been sentenced to life without parole.

In May, a Canadian County jury convicted Rebecca Bryan in the 2011 murder and recommended she be sentenced to life in prison without parole. Tuesday, the judge agreed with the recommendation and issued the sentence.

Prosecutors say that Rebecca Bryan shot her husband in the head then hid the gun in a clothes dryer. Bryan had told investigators that an intruder broke into their home and shot her husband.

A presentencing report filed with the court says Bryan was a successful real estate agent who had no run-ins with law enforcement before her arrest.

She maintains her innocence and plans to appeal her conviction.
