“She seemed to be put together pretty good,” he said. “She seemed to be pretty confident.”

Rebecca Bryan's friend Debbie Proctor testified March 14 that Bryan showed her and a few others a picture on her phone of another man's penis, while they were en route to the hospital to check on Keith Bryan. She testified that Bryan told them she had sex with the man, one of her real estate clients, earlier that day and felt guilty because of the shooting.

Agent Shawn Wright reported that Bryan also called another man she'd had an affair with in 2009 on the night of the shooting, saying “she still loved him … and that she was thinking of buying a house near where” he lives. According to court records, Bryan also told him she “was going to be inheriting a significant amount of money.”

During the preliminary hearing, Wright testified that he searched the master bedroom and bathroom and found several boxes of ammunition under the couple's mattress on what appeared to be Rebecca Bryan's side of the bed.

He said he also found two gun boxes near the ammunition and one empty gun box on Keith Bryan's side of the bed. A Ruger .380-caliber gun box underneath Rebecca Bryan's side was empty but had a receipt inside, detailing Keith Bryan's purchase of the firearm in 2009, Wright testified.

Investigators later found the handgun in the utility room. Wright said the serial number “happened to be a match to the box I found in the master bedroom.”

James said Keith Bryan bought two Ruger .380-caliber handguns in March 2009 for Rebecca Bryan and their son, Kent Bryan. He said Kent Bryan reported his firearm stolen in April 2011 after a burglary at his residence.

A juvenile accused of the burglary was charged Feb. 24 and could have a connection to the shooting of Keith Bryan, James said after the hearing. Investigators said they didn't know enough about the burglary to give testimony about it Wednesday.

Wright testified the gun missing from Keith Bryan's side of the bed hasn't been recovered. He said the gun box wasn't taken from the home as evidence or photographed.
