OKLAHOMA CITY -

Family and friends of Becky Bryan testify on Friday in her murder trial. She is accused of shooting her husband, Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan.

The second week of trial wrapped up on Friday. The state rested its case first thing Friday morning and then the defense called Becky Bryan's brother to the stand.

David Reddick described his sister Becky Bryan's emotional state at the hospital the day her husband died. He testified "She just said she didn't know what she was going to do without him she was crying and she teared up pretty good."

He also discussed a phone conversation with his sister the night before the murder. Reddick said he promised her a family heirloom ring valued at approximately $20,000. Defense attorney Gary James has previously suggested that is why Becky Bryan told her ex-lover on the day of the shooting that she would be getting an inheritance soon.

Prosecutors argued David did not know part of his sister's life.

The defense also called Becky Bryan's sister, Gloria Strother to the stand. She said Becky was "sobbing" on the way to the hospital and clearly in "shock". Prosecutors argued Strother did not see and hear everything. They pointed to previous testimony claiming the defendant was laughing and talking about sex with another man.

The day ended with testimony from a neighbor, Randy Dunbar, who claimed a man matching the suspect description approached him looking for work a few weeks before the murder. The neighbor called the man "intimidating" and said he last saw him driving toward the Bryan home.

The neighbor also claimed a dark pickup truck similar to the description given to police sped by him the night Keith Bryan was shot. But prosecutors argued the timing was off

A pastor and coworker of Becky's also testified to her character. The trial will resume her on Monday.
