Rebecca Bryan, 52, appeared in court today for her initial arraignment on a first-degree murder charge. She was arrested one week ago today in connection with her husband’s death after investigators found a gun and other items in a clothes dryer inside their Mustang home.
Keith Bryan, 52, Nichols Hills fire chief, died of a gunshot wound to the head on Sept. 20. The medical examiner’s office has ruled his death a homicide.
Wearing an orange and white striped jail suit, glasses and with shackles on her feet, Bryan walked slowly through the courtroom Friday. She smiled at her son Kent and mouthed, “I love you.”
Her attorney, Gary James, said they will file a bond request at a later date. Bryan’s next court date is set for 9 a.m. Nov. 4, at which James said he will discuss the case with prosecutors.
