Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals Stays Execution

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has stayed the execution of a 26-year-old man convicted of hiring another person to kill his estranged, pregnant wife.

Fabion Brown was formally given two death sentences in Oklahoma County District Court earlier this month for the January 2012 deaths of 23-year-old Jessica Brown and her fetus in her Midwest City home.

Brown's execution was set for Oct. 31, but it was stayed to give the court time to review his first-degree murder conviction and death sentences.

Brown had pleaded not guilty and represented himself at trial.  Prosecutors acknowledged that Fabion Brown did not pull the trigger, but instead paid someone $250 to do it.

Three co-defendants in the case previously pleaded guilty as part of plea agreements and already have been sentenced.
