Estranged husband, girlfriend accused of hiring man to kill Midwest City woman, police say

Investigators filed a search warrant for Jessica Brown's Facebook page Friday to retrieve private messages sent between Oct. 11 and Jan. 11.

The victim had two life insurance policies, one through the Oklahoma National Guard and another that Fabion Brown took out on her, Clabes said. He said Fabion Brown inquired about the $400,000 policy with the Oklahoma National Guard about 4 a.m. Jan. 11.

Matheson told investigators that Fabion Brown was upset that his wife was planning to take the two children to Washington state. She said Brown also owed child support and was afraid of going to jail for failure to pay.

Jessica Brown's body was found after a neighbor reported two children wearing pajamas were playing in the street. When officers arrived, they asked the 2-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy where their mother was and the boy said, “Mommy is asleep,” according to reports.

The children were taken into custody by the state Department of Human Services.
