Matheson testified about overhearing a conversation among Fabion Brown and Glover, who goes by the nickname “Savage,” at the club where Fabion Brown worked as a disc jockey.
She said Fabion Brown discussed “baby-mama issues” with Savage that led to several conversations about killing Jessica Brown. The majority of those discussions, she testified, were at the club.
“Everything, as far as his kids, would be a lot easier if she wasn't in the picture,” Matheson said Fabion Brown told her.
Matheson also recounted driving with Fabion Brown and Glover to the victim's house about a week before the killing, and overhearing Fabion Brown outline escape routes for Glover.
Matheson testified she overheard Fabion Brown explaining the layout of the house to Glover and detailing Jessica Brown's routines.
Matheson testified that Glover was paid $250 to kill Jessica Brown, and received half of the payment from Fabion Brown on the same day her boyfriend rented a car for Glover to use in the attack.
Matheson told the judge Glover called her at 3 a.m. on Jan. 11 and told her “it was done.” She testified about meeting Glover and Ashley in the parking lot of the Belle Isle Walmart and paying Glover the balance of the money.
