Tuesday, a Garvin County man pleaded guilty in the killing of his father, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said.

In December 2015, 73-year-old Jackie Douglas Brown was found dead inside his Pauls Valley home. He died from a gunshot wound to his head.

OSBI special agents were requested to assist the Pauls Valley Police Department with the case. During an intense investigation into the murder, investigators identified Brown’s killer as his son, Kent Carson Brown, 42.

Agents flew to California to arrest Brown on a first-degree murder warrant. Tuesday, Brown pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
