MIDWEST CITY — “It's done.”

Emily Matheson, 23, recalls hearing those two words when she received a phone call shortly after 3 a.m. Jan. 11, police said.

That's when she knew that Jessica Lynn Brown, 23, of Midwest City, was dead. The call confirmed that a murder-for-hire had been carried out, court records show.

She told police she met with a man named “Savage” at a store so she could give him the second half of his $250 payment for the job.

Brown, a 23-year-old mother of two, was found dead several hours later in her Midwest City home. An autopsy report shows she was shot twice in the head and was six months pregnant with a baby girl.

Earlier this week, police arrested her estranged husband, Fabion Brown, 24, and his girlfriend, Matheson, on complaints of conspiracy to commit murder.

Matheson told investigators she and Brown plotted with a man via telephone to kill Jessica Brown. She said the man, identified as Brodric Lontae Glover, 19, was paid $125 in advance and $125 after the killing.

During an interview with detectives, Fabion Brown said Glover worked as a member of a cleanup crew at a local club, where he met him while working as a disc jockey.

Glover was arrested about 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 1700 block of S Westwood, near SW 15 and Pennsylvania Avenue, Oklahoma County sheriff's spokesman Mark Myers said. He surrendered without incident and was booked into the Midwest City jail, Myers said.

Midwest City police said Jessica Brown, a member of the Oklahoma National Guard, was going through a divorce and had been using her maiden name, McPherson. She was involved in a custody battle with Fabion Brown.

Matheson told investigators that Brown was behind on paying child support and thought he would go to jail at a divorce hearing set for Jan. 11. Jessica Brown never showed up for the hearing.

While being taken to the Oklahoma County jail Wednesday, Fabion Brown proclaimed his innocence by denying any involvement in his wife's death.

“I can't wait to see this mountain of evidence,” he said. “This isn't the first time Midwest City has arrested me for something and had to release me, so let's just see how this plays out.”
