OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma appeals court has upheld the first-degree murder conviction of a woman who was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of her husband.

The Court of Criminal Appeals handed down the ruling Thursday in the case of 55-year-old Rebecca Bryan. Bryan was convicted by a jury in Canadian County last year in the shooting death of her husband, 52-year-old Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan, on Sept. 20, 2011, at their home in Mustang.

Rebecca Bryan claimed an intruder shot her husband, though police found her pistol in a clothes dryer in the home after the shooting.

The gun was matched to the bullet that struck Keith Bryan. Police also found a spent shell casing and a left-handed rubber glove wrapped in a bullet-riddled blanket.
