EL RENO — In a police interview at the hospital after her husband was shot, murder defendant Becky Bryan said: “We were quite in love.”
Jurors listened intently Monday to the 35-minute recording of the interview that began about 1:30 a.m. Sept. 21, 2011.
“He's like the most amazing husband,” she said in the recording about her husband, Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan. “Everybody likes Keith.”
Jurors, though, heard testimony Monday that the real estate agent cheated on her husband hours earlier, with a client.
The client, Wesley Hubert, told jurors Becky Bryan stopped at his home in McLoud on her way back to her home in Mustang from Tulsa. He said they had flirted before but never had sex.
He said after talking about some things, she went to the bathroom. “And, when she came out, she was wearing a fishnet outfit,” he said.
“It was shocking to me mainly that it actually was going to happen,” he said. “She had been alone with me before … and nothing had ever happened.”
Becky Bryan is accused in a first-degree murder charge of shooting her husband inside their Mustang home Sept. 20, 2011. He died at the hospital the next day. He was 52.
They had been married 33 years.
She had a brief extramarital affair that ended in early 2010. Prosecutors have put on evidence she wanted to reunite with the former lover, Mark Holbrook, of Hugo.
She had left a message for the former lover before the shooting that she was about to get a large inheritance, according to testimony in the trial.
She was arrested after the gun used in the shooting was found inside a clothes dryer at the home.
She blames an intruder for the shooting.
If convicted, Becky Bryan, 54, faces life in prison or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The trial — now in its second week — has focused on the defendant's racy behavior in the days before the shooting and how calm she acted in the hours immediately afterward.
