Rebecca Bryan, 52, was arrested Friday on a complaint of first-degree murder in connection with the death of her husband, Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan.

Officers said Rebecca Bryan made two 911 calls the night of the shooting, and she told a dispatcher a man shot her husband before apologizing and saying the chief should have hired him. She said the intruder entered and exited the home through an unlocked garage door and drove away in a small, dark truck.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said Friday that police found a Ruger .380-caliber handgun, a spent shell casing and a glove inside a clothes dryer at the home. Ammunition and a box for the gun were found between the mattress and box spring of the bed in the master bedroom.

The utility room was not in the pathway Rebecca Bryan told police the intruder took from the garage to the living room and back.

Brown said Monday agents will continue to investigate the case, but it doesn't appear another person was involved in the shooting.
