The preliminary hearing for the wife of slain Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan has been rescheduled, according to court records.
Rebecca Bryan, 52, was scheduled to appear 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Canadian County Courthouse for her preliminary hearing on a murder charge in connection with her husband’s shooting death on Sept. 20. The date for the hearing has been rescheduled for 9 a.m. March 14.
In a 911 phone call, Rebecca Bryan blamed an intruder for the shooting. She was arrested after the handgun used in the shooting was found inside her home in a clothes dryer.
She called 911 to report her husband being shot at 10:07 p.m. Sept. 20, the records show. She called her former lover that night about three hours earlier, at 7:19 p.m.
The OSBI agent reported Rebecca Bryan had an extramarital affair with the man from July 2009 to January 2010.
