Day 3- Becky Bryan Murder Trial
May 8, 2013, today is Becky Bryan's birthday. National media is present - 48 hours & Dateline.
9:15 am - Judge gives instructions to the jury.
Family, Friends, and current Nichols Hills Fire Chief Terry Hamilton present in the courtroom.
STATE ADDRESSES JURY - Canadian County First Assistant Paul Hesse reads the information attached to charge of murder in the first degree.
OPENING STATEMENTS BEGIN- 9:30 am
Hesse : Its difficult after 33 years of marriage to imagine a wife shooting her husband in the head at point blank range but thats why we are here today. During that time, they had 2 children, now adult children. From all outward appearances it appeared they had a good marriage but Becky was not being faithful.
The defendant's husband, Keith Bryan still loved his wife, he cared for, her he adored her, but the feelings were no longer mutual.
At the end, she was seeking the love from other men, many men, including Mark Holbrook, a real estate broker, from Hugo.
Holbrook ended their relationship in January 2010, 18 mos. before the defendant shot and killed her husband.
Becky Bryan & Mike Holbrook met in 2009 at a training seminar for realtors and soon after they met the affair the began having an affair.
The affair ended after he decided he wanted to reconcile with his wife but the defendant was not ready to end it. The defendant desperately tried to get him back and try to get him back from his wife.
The defendant called and texted him, showed up in hugo unannounced, and even went to visit his parents.
The defendant went so far to say she was pregnant with Holbrook's child but that didn't work either.
In Jan 2010, she gave up and finally settled back in with Keith Bryan but her feelings for Holbrook would never go away. They would erupt 18 months later in Sept 2011, the same day Keith Bryan would die.
On September 20, 2011, Bryan was shot inside his home in Mustang around 10 p.m.
Becky Bryan had been in Tulsa that day without her husband Keith.
She was alone and during this time she took it upon herself to seek out other men.
It started with a realtor, Karl Oltterman. Becky sen Oltterman a text that morning.
She sent topless photographs to him, and a photograph of her private parts
In one of those texts she said "ride this cowboy"
Oltterman sent texts in return, in at least one he included pictures of his private parts.
There was another man, Bill Whitescarver who was attending the real estate training course with his fiance.
On the second day of the training, around 10 a.m. Becky sends a text to Whitescarver. She is at Doubletree Hotel in Tulsa and says," hey, why don't you take an early lunch and come see me."
Whitescarver says well I guess you are not coming to the training course today.
Becky Bryan continued to pursue him. He didn't respond and later said, "I am here with my fiance."
Becky replied, "you are probably making a good decision. You probably would have fell in love with me.
After that rejection, Becky reached out to Wesley Hubert, a man she sold a house for in Mustang back in summer 2009. She also helped him find a home in Mcloud.
On her way back from Tulsa, the two make arrangements to meet at his home in Mcloud, Becky Bryan sops by around 4 p.m. and they have sex. She is there about an hour and half and then she goes home.
Although she was finding and pursuing other men. Becky's desire with Holbrook never went away and it was that afternoon, almost a year and half after he broke up with her she contacted him. She contacted him around 7 p.m.
It started with a telephone call. She calls his cell and he answers because he does not know who it is. He immediately hangs up. So, she starts sending texts.
She sent 10 text messages to Mark Holbrook and they began at 7:23 that evening.
They said things like :
"Sorry I called you. meant to text. I still love you with all my heart and want to spend the rest of my life with you. I think about you every day. How did you stop loving me."
"Tell me you hate me so I can stop loving you."
"Use your phone so Micah wont know"
"I'm sorry I hurt you. You hurt me so bad"
"I've had no sex drive since we were together. I need you to be whole again."
"Please forgive me. call me"
"Gayle just got married saturday"
"I went on a date with George Raymond. He dumped his girlfriends for me... lol
All i thought about was you. Did he tell you?"
"I need you Mark Allen"
Becky Bryan also left voicemail messages. Voicemails Holbrook did not listen to until the next day. When he listened. The voicemails said :
Soon I will be inheriting some money and I'm coming to Hugo, Oklahoma. She said this early evening on the Tuesday Keith Bryan was shot and killed.
Later that evening a friend of Becky Bryan, Debbie Proctor comes over. She came over following a blind date. She had gone to the Chili's Restaurant and wanted to report back to her friend how it had gone.
She parked her car in driveway and walked around to the back where Becky Bryan and Keith Bryan were sitting on the back porch drank tea and talked about the date, about the President, until something unusual happened.
Just out of the blue , Becky reached over to Debbie Proctor and tapped her on the knee and said you need to go.
Proctor had never been asked to leave before . Normally, if it got late she would stay the night on the couch but Proctor. She left from the back patio through house and out the garage
Two cars were in the driveway and a small pickup truck they also owned.
Proctor goes home approx. 2 miles from the Bryan residence. She walks the dog and makes a sandwich. Its been approx. 45 minutes and she gets a call from Becky.
Becky says Keith has been shot come back over
15 minutes earlier - she had called 911 and told police a 25 year old man wearing a hoodie came in and shot her husband in the head and turned to her and said, sorry he should have hired me.
Becky tells police she followed him out and saw what vehicle he was in, saw the path he was taking, and says she saw him driving north.
When two officers pull up at her house. Becky meets them in the driveway with no rush to get them inside. When they get inside, they find Keith Bryan with a gunshot wound to the head.
He had a bullet hole above his right ear an exit wound on the opposite side.
Keith is still alive and he is still breathing
He is rushed to OU Medical Center in OKC.
That's where he would die the next morning around 6 a.m.
You will hear from the EMTs that treated the victim. One will testify about the statements Becky made while he worked on her husband.
In one instance she claimed she was seated in a love seat or chair.
In another, the paramedic heard that she came out of the bedroom
The 911 call happened at 10:07pm, well before 11 p.m. first responders took him to hospital but Becky stayed at the house til around midnight.
Family and friends were there and they say she was acting in a peculiar manner.
People will say she was on the phone most of the time and laughing. She was concerned about how she would sell her house now that her husband had been killed
Everyone she was speaking to she told he is dead, we are planning a funeral -this was hours before she learned he died
OSBI was requested to assist.
Everyone at the house was asked to leave including Becky and her friends.
Becky and her sister, sister's boyfriend and two other friends Debbie Proctor and Sharon Valdez were in the backseat of the car with Becky.
The group stopped at Debbie Proctor's house so they can get sweat pants and flip flops for Becky.
On the way to the hospital, Becky tells her friends she had sex with Wesley Hubert earlier that day. She pulls up pictures of his penis to show. She also said she contacted Mark Holbrook that day. Becky told everyone in the car she felt bad about what happened but not bad about what happened to her husband but only that she felt bad she had sex with Wes Hubert the same day her husband was shot.
When they get to the hospital, Nichols Hills Firefighters greet Becky. She talks with them for a few minutes before going into the hospital.
Becky described for many people the gun that was used. She said it was a small black handgun.
She said it was similar to the gun that was stolen from her son just a few weeks before but what she tell them was she owned a gun just like the one stolen from her son.
Becky told Mustang Police and OSBI the intruder was cute, nice and she wasn't afraid of him. She said this even though he just shot her husband in cold blood. She said she wasn't afraid of him.
She then told investigators the intruder left through the garage door and went to his truck.
There is a direct path that leads right to the garage from the living room. The utility room is a good 4 or 5 feet from the garage door. In that utility room is a washer & dryer. The washer was the 1st appliance from the door and the dryer was the 2nd.
An investigators pulls a blanket from the dryer and a gun falls out.
The gun box would be found between the mattress and box spring of the bryan's bed also found in the blanket was a shell casing, in addition to that, they found a right handed latex glove. The glove was tested by OSBI. It had DNA in it. DNA from the defendant. Also a mixture of DNA that had part of victims DNA.
Investigators found holes in that blanket that appeared someone had shot through that blanket and there was gun residue
They also found a projectile that went through Keith Bryan's head
Criminalist believe the same casing was fired from the gun found in the dryer
DEFENSE OPENING STATEMENTS - Approximately 10:15 am
Defense Attorney Gary James :
What you hear in these opening statements is not evidence.
Becky was a good homemaker, a good mom and provided a good home life and was very active in their church.
They both taught Sunday school classes and both attended church regularly. Now,
There was a point in time where a marriage hits a rut and as we heard from some of the jurors... kids had grown up and the relationship was not a s strong as it once was
Becky began a relationship with Mark Holbrook in 2009 and moved forward. In fact there was even interaction between both of their spouses. BB & KB stopped and had breakfast with Holbrook and his wife on the way for a job interview in Texas. A relationship developed and you will probably see that Holbrook pursued Becky and said how God brought them together and that God was telling them to be together
In January 2010, Becky filed for divorce it was not contentious. She moved into a condo in the 500 block of Jacobs. Both Keith and his father had gone to help becky move in it was an amicable separation
Then around April of 2010 - the friends start to see reconciliation. Becky is at fire luncheon dinner and people realize they are back together
They continue doing well and were doing well on Sept. 20th
You will hear two different sides, Becky said Keith had re-courted her. Keith took the blame for a lot of the divorce filing telling people he didn't treat her right should have been more attentive, sent her flowers, and then the two got back together
Keith told people if i had to go through all of it again I would cause its all worth it cause things are good now. Becky said she wasn't madly in love but things were good between them.
You will hear Becky goes to a seminar you will hear about her text messages.
"It's those text messages and some of the action with those men that have brought us here today because there was a rush to judgement in this case."
Becky and Keith were sending flirty texts the day of the shooting like want me to stop and get you something to eat. I'm on my way home.
And she said "Are you getting hot and bothered thinking of me in your council meeting."
On the way home, Becky stops to help her friend debbie proctor figure out what to wear on date that night.
Proctor goes on that date and when she is done she stops by the Bryan home.
When Proctor got there she parks in driveway she doesn't remember if the garage door was up or down when she got to Bryan home. A neighbor says it was up.
She walks around back and Becky says come over and smoke. I think you will see that is something that happened often between these friends.
Keith made a fresh pot of ice tea for Becky and they are out back drinking tea
when Proctor shows up. She stays approximately 45 mins, around 930 timeframe. She will say nothing was out of the ordinary between the two of them
They talked about the president and politics and Becky was teasing him saying he looks like Charlie Sheen. They were teasing him how good looking he was and at one point Becky tells Proctor its time to get out of here.
Becky walks her through the house out through the garage to debbie's car parked in the driveway.
Debbie said there was a light on in the garage when she went through they have pleasantries and debbie proctor leaves.
The next thing is a 911 call, made twice. First, by Becky Bryan's cell phone it cuts out and they lose connection. The 911 call comes in again from the land line.
Becky tells them there had been a shooter she describes them as wearing a hoodie type sweatshirt young man, medium build, white tennis shoes, and stays with that description the whole point of the case.
"First time I saw shooter is when he is up on us "she tells them he receives a gun shot wound to the right head
She consistently made statement that shooter says "he should have f'ing hired me"
Well when is the last time Nichols Hills Fire ever hired anybody? She knew it had been 3 or 4 years. Thats where the confusion came from that maybe it was meant for Keith Bryant the OKC Fire Chief. There had been a confusion over that because Becky knew there had not been a hiring in some time
Keith was a handy guy. Everyone knew that. He had a big shop out back. Some neighbors will tell you Keith would build something or out there working in the yard. He was currently building a hot tub area. Keith was building a brick wall around the tub. It was a source of jokes around the family. He would tear off a row if it was not straight and do it again.
There was even a cement mixture out and even water in the last row of bricks on September 20th.
Randy Dunbar, a neighbor will tell you two weeks prior to the murder. Dunbar was working in his yard and a man came up to him, approached him in his yard. He was white male, medium build. He asked him do you need any help with any kind of work, specifically lawn work. Dunbar is a little fearful, uneasy about him and the man asked, well does any of your neighbor need work being done. Dunbar was not going to volunteer any neighbors because he was not sure about the guy.
What he remember the last of him is going south on owen.. it dead ends or you can turn left to the bryan's home or right to the other end of the street.
You can see Keith's brick work going on from Rose Hill Drive. You are going to hear evidence Keith was out back working on the brick wall at that time.
Now you will hear statements about Becky's demeanor. Some will say she was in shock. Some will say she is laughing. Some will say she kept telling people he [keith] is dead - with the shot he took to the head that is not an unreasonable assumption.
Ultimately she went to hospital, but first Becky stayed at the house. Mustang Police tested her for gun shot residue and at some point she is told to sit on the back porch. At some point all of the cars become a part of the crime scene.
So she calls her sister Gloria Strother [sp?] and her boyfriend, along with Sharon Valdez [sp?] and Debbie Proctor leave to go to hospital.
While Becky and friends are at the hospital, the OSBI is at the house searching with photographers,loggers,etc.
The Bryan home has a lot of guns- specifically in the bedroom. Well, a glock .40 caliber pistol box is also found by investigators. You wont see pics of that because OSBI didn't take pictures, they didn't think it was necessary. Well, that .40 caliber glock has not been found since then.
Ultimately, Kent Bryan - Keith Bryan's son had some burglaries at is house. So Keith gives a gun to his son and ultimately kent's house was broken into and the only thing stolen was the Ruger LCP .380 and $100 cash.
This [burglary] happened 6 months prior to the shooting. There was strife between the Bryans and the Mustang Police because they did not initially fingerprint Kent's house.
Eventually, Police come back out and take fingerprint. Oddly 6 months later , the same day of Keith's murder, the prints are turned into the OSBI.
So, Cami McNeil [Mustang Detective]goes back to hear the 911 call and get reports of Kent's stolen gun.
At some point, an OSBI agent decides he will search, by himself, in the utility room. The agent says he sees a blanket and as he pulls it out of the dryer a gun, glove, and shell casing falls on the floor.
Agents did not take one picture of the shell casing on the floor - a very critical piece of evidence.
Once they found out the dryer contained what agents believe to be critical evidence, they did not fingerprint the dryer.
"This is some of why I think evidence will show this was a rush to judgement case."
"The state tells you they found Becky Bryan's DNA in a glove in her own house, a work glove and thats she's the major component. Well, the the minor component matched Keith Bryan."
OSBI also gathered clothes that becky had on that evening and they checked her clothing for blood, blow back (you will hear blow back is matter that would come back on you during a shooting). They did not find any on Becky Bryan.
OSBI did not collect the hair from when it was shaved from Keith Bryan at the hospital which could have been critical evidence.
Also, a box of Blazer Brass (a box of bullets) was found in the bedroom. Investigators say 4 rounds were left in gun, 1 round left in the chamber, and 1 round struck Keith Bryan. That's 6 rounds right there. They say the box had 45 bullets left in it, so of the Blazer Brass - we have 51 bullets?
Also, you will hear that on September 22, following a breaking news report, JW Jones , an ex-Clinton & ex-Mustang officer hears there is a possible small blue or black pickup that was involved in a shooting in Mustang a little after 10pm on September 20th. Thats when he realize something he witnessed was very important.
JW Jones told 2 OSBI agents - he left his sisters house, 2/3 of mile from Czech Hall, he texted his girlfriend before leaving. It was around 10:05pm when he heads for home. He is heading East on SH152 when he gets close to Czech Hall he notices a vehicle coming up quick on him. The vehicle almost strikes a Silver Sedan. All this caught his eye. He says this small blue or black ford ranger is crowding a car trying to get through the intersection. He says I kinda wanted to look over and see. So, he looks over and he is able to see the driver, a white male medium build with a long sleeve sweatshirt pulling a hat or hoodie up over his head.
Jones reports this to the OSBI on September 22nd. Two businesses in the area have cameras but no one goes to check the surveillance.
What Jones told OSBI was not written in a report until April 4, 2013, just a couple weeks ago.
