He and his wife were married more than 30 years. She filed for divorce in January 2010 but took no further action.
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 in the clothes dryer inside the home.
On the night of the shooting, Rebecca Bryan had called a man she'd had an affair with in 2009 and said “she still loved him ... and that she was thinking of buying a house near where” he lives, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing and court records. She also had said she “was going to be inheriting a significant amount of money.”
After the shooting, she admitted to a friend she had sex with a different man earlier that day, according to testimony at the preliminary hearing.
District Judge Gary Miller is set to meet with a prosecutor and the defense attorney Wednesday morning to discuss pending legal motions.
Among the defense motions is one to limit prosecution testimony about Rebecca Bryan's demeanor after the shooting.
Assistant District Attorney Paul Hesse told the judge, “The evidence of … her lack of grief following the shooting of her husband is relevant because it shows the defendant's consciousness of guilt.”Ongoing coverage
