MIDWEST CITY — A 19-year-old man accused of killing a pregnant woman for money shot her while she was sleeping next to her two young children, police said Thursday.
Brodric Glover was arrested Wednesday night and brought to the Midwest City Police Department in connection with the Jan. 11 killing of Jessica Lynn Brown, 23, of Midwest City, and her unborn child.
Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said Glover gave graphic details about his role in the shooting. He told police the victim was in her bed with her children when the shooting occurred. Clabes said it appears all three were asleep.
An autopsy shows she was shot twice in the head and was six months pregnant with a baby girl. Clabes said Fabion Brown is the father of the two children, but it is unknown whether he was the father of the unborn child.
Neighbors discovered the children playing in the street unattended later that day and called police. When officers arrived, the children told police their mother was inside sleeping.
Police went inside the Locust Lane home and found Brown lying in the bedroom with a “large amount of blood around her head,” according to an affidavit.
Clabes said the children remain in the custody of the state Department of Human Services.
He said he could not comment on the interaction between Glover and the two children or how the alleged hit-man entered the home. A description of the weapon used was not given.
During the interview, Clabes said, Glover gave details about the murder-for-hire plot, including implicating the victim's estranged husband, Fabion Brown, and his girlfriend, Emily Matheson. He told police Brown approached him with the plan, described the interior of the home and what Jessica Brown's routine would be, police said.
