Man convicted of murdering estranged wife sentenced to death

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._A man convicted of hiring someone to kill his pregnant estranged wife has been sentenced to death.

Friday, a jury handed down the death penalty to 26-year-old Fabion Brown in Oklahoma City. He had been convicted a day earlier of killing 23-year-old Jessica Brown and her fetus in her Midwest City home on January 11, 2012.  

Prosecutors acknowledged that Fabion Brown did not pull the trigger, but instead paid someone $250 to do it.  

Three other co-defendants made plea agreements and have already been sentenced.  Fabion Brown represented himself. He remained silent as he was led from the courtroom to jail.
