EDMOND, OK (KSWO)–New information is now available about the murder of an Edmond woman on April 4.

The victim’s husband called police frantically after finding his wife dead in the garage of his house and said he knew who was responsible.

He said he found Katherine Bryant, 54, in the garage with a blanket over her and a large blunt force wound to the head.

Joshua Thomas Bryant, 17, has since been arrested for the death.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Bryant admitted to hitting his stepmother in the head with a baseball bat, which caused her to lose consciousness. He then considered his next move before dragging her body to the garage and firing a .22 caliber rifle shot into the back of the victim’s head. He then fled the scene.

A motive for the murder has still not been established. Joshua Bryant is charged with first-degree murder.
