MIDWEST CITY — The estranged husband of a pregnant woman found dead last month is accused of hiring a man to kill her, police said Tuesday.
Police Chief Brandon Clabes said officers arrested Fabion Brown, 24, and his girlfriend, Emily Matheson, 23, in connection with the killing of Jessica Lynn Brown. Both were booked into the Midwest City jail on complaints of conspiracy to commit murder and are scheduled Wednesday to be taken to the Oklahoma County jail.
Clabes said Matheson gave investigators details about how the couple hired Brodric Glover, 19, to kill Jessica Brown. An arrest warrant has been issued for Glover on two complaints of murder.
Clabes said two juveniles likely were with Glover at the time of Jessica Brown's death. The juveniles have been arrested on unrelated complaints, police said.
“Some of the basic details we know at this point are Fabion Brown, along with Matheson, conspired to kill Jessica and her unborn child in exchange for a small amount of cash,” he said.
The mother of two was found dead Jan. 11 in her home on Locust Lane. Brown, a member of the Oklahoma National Guard, was going through a divorce and had been using her maiden name, McPherson.
